In the December issue of Vanity Fair, music icon Adele opened up about her own personal experience dealing with postpartum depression after her son’s birth in October 2012.
Like many new moms dealing with postpartum depression, she didn’t even realize that’s what she was feeling at first.
“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.”
