Actress reveals pain of postpartum depression

In the current issue of her personal newsletter, actress Gwyneth Paltrow describes  "one of the darkest and most painfully debilitating chapters of my life," a period of post-partum depression.

She writes in Goop that instead of the same “euphoria” she felt after the birth of her first child, for "five months I had, what I can see in hindsight as postnatal depression" after giving birth to her son, Moses, in 2006.

The newsletter also has a post from "Twilight Saga: Eclipse" star Bryce Dallas Howard, whose  severe postpartum depression was disagnosed after she gave birth to her first child at the age of 25.

    Good V I should certainly pronounce, impressed with your website. I had no trouble navigating through all tabs and related information ended up being truly simple to do to access. I recently found what I hoped for before you know it at all. Reasonably unusual. Is likely to appreciate it for those who add forums or anything, web site theme . a tones way for your customer to communicate. Nice task..
