Chrissy Teigen recently opened up about her experience with postpartum depression after giving birth to baby Luna in an essay for Glamour Magazine and now John Legend is talking about how proud he is of his wife.
In order for women going through PPD to get well quicker, there has to be a support system, and for this, we are glad to see men support their wives as they fight through the struggle.
Talking to E! News John said:
I’m so proud of her, She showed me the drafts when she was writing it and I knew it would mean a lot to a lot of women for them to see that. By acknowledging the pain that she’s going through, in doing that she also acknowledges the pain that a lot of women go through after they have a child. A lot of people don’t want to talk about it. A lot of people feel alone when they’re going through it and for her to let people know that they’re not alone, I think was really powerful.
He also had some advice for men whose wives were going through PPD:
You have to be present. You have to be compassionate. You have to understand what the reasons for them feeling what they’re feeling are, I think once you know the reasons. I think you can be more helpful in identifying what they’re going through.
