Actress Drew Barrymore has opened up about her battle with postpartum depression after giving birth to her second baby.
The 40-year-old “50 First Dates” actress said it lasted for six months, reported People magazine.
“I didn’t have postpartum the first time so I didn’t understand it because I was like, ‘I feel great!’ The second time, I was like, ‘Oh, whoa, I see what people talk about now. I understand’,” she said.
“It’s a different type of overwhelming with the second. I really got under the cloud.”
The mother of 3-year-old Olive and 18-month-old Frankie added the experience was “short-lived, probably six months.”
Drew, however, is grateful with the experience which always reminds her to stay present in the moment.
“It’s really important. I was in the kids’ class with Frankie and Olive this morning and I started fretting about some piece of work news that was just stressful.
“You know, in like the Broadway Babies class and it’s the one-hit wonders day, and they’re singing I don’t even know what song, and we’re all doing our lollipop drums and I just thought, ‘Save it until after class.’ One thing at a time.”
