We applaud her for being so open about it!
Alanis Morissette recently revealed that she battled postpartum depression after giving birth to son Ever in 2010, and now the 38-year-old singer is coming forth with her own advice for mothers suffering from the same condition.
"I just thought it was a swampy chapter, if I soldiered it out, that it would go away. I came to realize that the longer I waited, the more intense it would become," she explained to ET Canada.
The Grammy winner is the latest celeb to confess to the baby blues, following admissions from Brooke Shields and Gwyneth Paltrow among others.
"I think if there is any goal in me talking about it, it would be to eradicate the shame around it. It's just what happens sometimes and, for me, I just waited way too long to reach out for help," she added.
Bravo for being so honest, Alanis!
