Adele speaks about her postnatal depression after the birth of her son Angelo
Adele has opened up about her battle with postnatal depression after the birth of her son, Angelo.The singer told Vanity Fair magazine that she felt, at the time, like she had made “the worst decision” of her life.
The 28-year old goes on to say that she “loves her son more than anything” but admits she really struggled adjusting to motherhood.”I was obsessed with my child. I felt very inadequate,” she says. Angelo is now four and Adele’s only child with partner Simon Konecki. He advised her to talk to other mothers about her concerns.
She says she refused at first but the depression “lifted” once she confided in a friend who had a child and realized she wasn’t alone. She goes on to say that taking an afternoon a week to herself improved the situation.
