According to Celebrity Baby Blog, actress Amanda Peet has revealed that she struggled with a fairly serious postpartum depression following the birth of her daughter Frances Penn in an interview with Gotham magazine.
The 36-year-old actress says that the feelings of euphoria she enjoyed while pregnant "all came crashing down the second [Frankie] was born; "expecting to feel fulfilled," Amanda says she instead felt "sleep-deprived beyond belief" and ambivalent about motherhood. She adds, "I want to be honest about it because I think there’s still so much shame when you have mixed feelings about being a mom instead of feeling this sort of 'bliss.' I think a lot of people still really struggle with that, but it’s hard to find other people who are willing to talk about it."
Thanks for being a Warrior Mom, Amanda.
