"Post-Partum"

Last night I went to the grocery store to pick up a few items. In the check out one of the magazines made a statement about Angelia Jolie having:
"Post-Partum"
WebMD's definition of "postpartum" is "After childbirth. Cf.: antepartum, intrapartum". I would like to offer my congratulations to Angelina on the birth of her twins Vivienne and Knox.
I'm guessing the magazine is referring to postpartum blues or depression. I don't keep up with celebrities. But if it is what is the big deal to them? It is something that she, her family and medical team can take care of together. I've been there. Giving birth is hard. Having two at once is exponentially harder. It take time for a mom to adjust physically and emotionally. I have faith that the people around her will love her though this time and she will come out better on the other end.

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. Good luck with your diagnosis. I was also post-partum and am so glad to be my self again after a nine months of living with it and a year of meds.
