Adele has revealed her problems with post natal depression after the birth of her son Angelo.
Whatever walk of life you are from PND can be a huge struggle. With more celebrities talking about PND we hope that it encourages more open dialogue for those that suffer in silence.
Following are a few excerpts from the interview she gave to Vanity Fair.
She told Vanity Fair: “My knowledge of postpartum-or post-natal, as we call it in England-is that you don’t want to be with your child; you’re worried you might hurt your child; you’re worried you weren’t doing a good job.
“But I was obsessed with my child. I felt very inadequate; I felt like I’d made the worst decision of my life . . . . It can come in many different forms.
“Eventually I just said, I’m going to give myself an afternoon a week, just to do whatever the f*** I want without my baby. A friend of mine said, ‘Really? Don’t you feel bad?’ I said, ‘I do, but not as bad as I’d feel if I didn’t do it’.”
She told the magazine: “I think it’s the bravest thing not to have a child; all my friends and I felt pressurised into having kids, because that’s what adults do.
“I love my son more than anything, but on a daily basis, if I have a minute or two, I wish I could do whatever the f*** I wanted, whenever I want. Every single day I feel like that.”
