Jordan Sparks opened up about her battle with postpartum depression during an interview with American magazine, Us Weekly. The star shared that she felt lonely and took a while to feel like herself again after giving birth.
She said in part: “Everybody knows about what postpartum depression is—maybe not exactly what it all entails because it’s different for each woman—but there’s this thing called the fourth trimester, which happens after you have your baby. It’s dealing with everything that happens with your body. Your body goes and changes, your hormones are absolutely insane.”
She continued: “Then you’re dealing with this baby and then something doesn’t go right. … We’ve got tons of people to hold the baby, but who hold us? Who hold us together? Who helps us get through all that stuff? Obviously, people in your family who knows what you’ve been through and had kids before, but sometimes it feels hard to reach out because you’re like, ‘How do I feel so lonely when this amazing thing just happened?’”
