Why Aren’t Women Speaking Up About Postpartum Depression? You had postpartum depression after a previous pregnancy.

So when women like Drew, like Gwyneth, like Hayden, like Marie Osmond, and Brooke Shields speak out on their experiences with postpartum depression, it gives me hope. Why a new mom would want to keep her postpartum depression a secret is entirely up to her, and is a decision probably made for a variety of reasons.
