Sameera Reddy opens up about dealing with Postpartum depression

A few months ago, Sameera opened up about dealing with postpartum depression after giving birth to her first child. She took to social media and penned a long note. 

She wrote, "I couldn’t feel happy however hard I tried after the birth of my first child. I still reflect on these moments and it only drives me harder to reach out to anyone not feeling good about themselves. You are not alone. And being there for each other in tough times is so important."

"I questioned myself so many times if I should have a second baby. I was a complete wreck after my firstborn. PPD hit me like a brick. I lost control of my body and my self-worth. And it took a toll on my marriage because I had no clue how to handle it", she added.
