Chrissy Teigen, the wife of John Legend, has opened up about her experience with postpartum depression.
After feeling out of sorts for a period, Teigen made an appointment with her GP to explain what she had been feeling and experiencing. Seeking expert advice was the best thing she could have done.
“I looked at my doctor, and my eyes welled up because I was so tired of being in pain. Of sleeping on the couch. Of waking up throughout the night. Of throwing up. Of taking things out on the wrong people. Of not enjoying life. Of not seeing my friends. Of not having the energy to take my baby for a stroll,” she wrote in the April issue of Glamour.
I think women of all ages can appreciate Teigen’s honesty. She is not one to beat around the bush or back down from her beliefs. She is a role model for those women struggling with postpartum depression and just a strong female role model in general. Cheers to you Chrissy Teigen. We hope you come out of this stronger and enjoy time with your supportive husband and cute baby.
