Hayden Panettiere Talks About Postpartum Depression 2016

Hayden Panettiere on Her Postpartum Depression: "All You See Is This Enveloping Darkness"

Hayden Panettiere is one strong woman! The Nashville star recently sat down with People and opened up about her battle with postpartum depression, revealing, "It's like being in a tunnel. You can't even remember when you felt good. You try and think back to when you felt good, when you felt positive, when you felt happy, and you can't. All you see is this enveloping darkness." After seeking professional treatment back in October, Hayden explains that the "biggest message" she's trying to promote for women is that "it's okay to ask for help."

Nowadays, the actress says she's "been trying to be much more open and honest about who I am," adding, "I'm 26 years old, I'm an adult, and [I don't] have to falsify who I am." She's also been able to channel her emotions into her work as her Nashville character, Juliette, and when she's not busy at work, Hayden is at home being a doting mother to daughter Kaya.
