The Nashville star's character suffered from postpartum depression, which is something Hayden Panettiere can closely relate to. She said:
"It's something a lot of women experience. When you're told about postpartum depression you think it's 'I feel negative feelings towards my child, I want to injure or hurt my child' — I've never, ever had those feelings. Some women do. But you don't realize how broad of a spectrum you can really experience that on. It's something that needs to be talked about. Women need to know that they're not alone, and that it does heal."
The 26-year-old is now seeking voluntary treatment at a professional facility.
