Have your say

Good on Adele speaking out about suffering depression after the birth of her son.

There’s no shame in it, we should speak about it more.

I had a breakdown after my son’s birth.

Me having post-natal depression? Never, but boy did I suffer.

I put on a show every day for everyone but inside I was crumbling.

Thanks to a great health visitor and doctor I recovered.

It was a slow fight back, it took many years.

I will never be back to how I was before he was born but I am almost there, so that’s good enough for me.

If anyone is suffering after childbirth don’t hold it in there is help, please seek it out.
