Adele Opens Up On Overcoming Postpartum Depression After Son’s Birth As She Covers Vanity Fair Magazine

Songstress, Adele, graces the cover of the latest issue of Vanity Fair Magazine and reveals how she battled postpartum depression and overcame it.

According to Vanity Fair Magazine, the mum of one revealed she had really bad postpartum depression, also known as post-natal depression, after she had her son, which really frightened her.

The 28-year-old singer, who welcomed her son with baby daddy and rumoured fiancé, Simon Konecki, said:

“I had really bad postpartum depression after I had my son, and it frightened me. […] My friends who didn’t have kids would get annoyed with me…whereas I knew I could just sit there and chat absolute mush with my friends who had children, and we wouldn’t judge each other.

One day I said to a friend, ‘I fuckin’ hate this,’ and she just burst into tears and said, ‘I fuckin’ hate this, too.’ And it was done. It lifted. My knowledge of postpartum—or post-natal, as we call it in England—is that you don’t want to be with your child; you’re worried you might hurt your child; you’re worried you weren’t doing a good job. But I was obsessed with my child. I felt very inadequate; I felt like I’d made the worst decision of my life. It can come in many different forms. Eventually I just said, I’m going to give myself an afternoon a week, just to do whatever the fuck I want without my baby. A friend of mine said, ‘Really? Don’t you feel bad?’ I said, I do, but not as bad as I’d feel if I didn’t do it.”
