Drew reveals postpartum depression battle

Drew reveals postpartum  depression battle
Actor 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.”  “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.”
