Hayden Panettiere battled post-partum depression and is finally opening up about it. During her appearance on “Live! with Kelly and Michael,” Panettiere went into detail about her experience. While some women feel like they should harm themselves or their child, those thoughts didn’t cross her mind. She was emotional, so much so that she hated how she was feeling. According to a report from People on Tuesday, Hayden Panettiere wants to speak out about post-partum depression so other women don’t feel so alone. It is a real issue, not something made up like some people believe.
On “Nashville,” Hayden Panettiere’s character dealt with post-partum depression. The two worlds collided for the young actress who delivered her daughter just nine months ago. Right now she is keeping an open mind about expanding her family, but doing it one at a time. Her fiance has been incredibly supportive and is quite close to their daughter. While Panettiere feels better now, post-partum depression wasn’t easy to deal with. She wants women to know that it does get better, even if it doesn’t feel like it at the time.
Currently “Nashville” is airing a new season, and Hayden Panettiere is happy it is back. She is making the talk show rounds for promotion, but also bringing awareness to post-partum depression. Thankfully there are resources available to help women deal with this difficult time. Panettiere is brave for coming out with her story, especially because it isn’t widely talked about in Hollywood. As she enjoys watching her daughter grow, Panettiere can rest easy knowing she beat post-partum depression.
