There is help out there

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.
