Celebrities from not just Hollywood, but Bollywood have struggled with postpartum depression and opened up about their experience with courage, to inspire others. Check who are they.

Being a mother is the most beautiful feeling in the world and there is no debate about it. Things change a lot between the period of pregnancy and childbirth. The new parents try their best to chase that perfection for their child, but the struggle for that perfection can really affect the mental and physical health of a mother as she has the tasks of the whole world to perform with the little one. However, postpartum depression can mentally affect both the parents, due to carrying a child for a long period of nine months and the delivery process can be a little too exhausting for the mothers. Here are some of the role models who opened up about their experience about the condition and said, ‘it is okay to not be okay’.
