Postpartum depression

Rapper Cardi B has opened up about her experiences of suffering from post-partum depression following the birth of her daughter, Kulture Kiari.

The I Like It singer revealed her emotional rollercoaster following childbirth, explaining how she assumed she'd "avoid" developing the common condition.

The 26-year-old spoke to  Harper Bazaar for the March cover issue, and elaborated on the difficulties of facing life with the feeling of heaviness.

Cardi explained that she felt fine six months ago, when Kulture was first born, until post-partum depression hit her unexpectedly;

“I thought I was going to avoid it,” she revealed to the magazine. “When I gave birth, the doctor told me about postpartum, and I was like: ‘Well, I’m doing good right now, I don’t think that’s going to happen."

She continued; “But out of nowhere, the world was heavy on my shoulders.”

She also got candid about the feeling of losing control over your body following pregnancy, admitting that her body "doesn't feel the same".

She said: “For some reason, I still don’t feel like my body’s the same. I feel like I don’t have my balance right yet. When it comes to heels, I’m not as good at walking anymore."

“I feel like I’m holding a weight on me. I don’t know why because I’m skinnier than I’ve ever been. But there’s an energy I haven’t gotten back yet that I had before I was pregnant. It’s just the weirdest thing.”

Cardi B welcomed Kulture in July with her rapper husband Offset, but the pair announced their divorce shortly afterwards.

The couple secretly wed in September 2017, insisted that the split was good for both of them, and that they simply "fell out of love".

Taking to Instagram, the Grammy-nominated artist said:

“We’re really good friends and you know we’re really good business partners and you know, he’s always somebody that I run to, to talk to and we got a lot of love for each other, but things just haven’t been working out between us for a long time.

In an Instagram post which has amassed almost 100,000 likes in just 15 minutes, Chrissy Teigen has revealed that she has been suffering from postpartum depression.

Alongside a black and white shot of herself, the much-loved model thanked Glamour magazine for allowing her to share her experience, and told her followers that she is relieved to have been able to open up about the issue.

31-year-old Chrissy, who welcomed baby Luna in 2016, wrote: "I'll just say it: I have post partum depression. So much love to @glamourmag for letting me share something that was eating me up inside for months and months."

While acknowledging her popularity on social media, Chrissy admitted that she was apprehensive about sharing her experience despite her notably candid demeanour.

"One of the most amazing things about social media is the ability to interact candidly with friends and fans and it felt so weird knowing what I was going through but not really feeling like it was the right place to speak on it," she wrote.

 

I have dreamed of this day!

"I've always felt genuinely close to all of you and I'm insanely relieved you now know something that has been such a huge part of me for so long."

In the essay published in the popular magazine, Chrissy wrote: "I know I might sound like a whiny, entitled girl. Plenty of people around the world in my situation have no help, no family, no access to medical care."

"I can’t imagine not being able to go to the doctors that I need," she added.

Chrissy's post has been inundated with messages of support from fans and followers, with one writing: "I felt so bad that you felt the need to apologize because you're "famous" which is bs because you're still human and allowed to have a mental illness."

While she still has ‘rough days’, Chrissy insists is improving every day.
