The 50-year-old even confessed that she never considered the possibility of postpartum depression, believing her thoughts were unrelated.
“I used to have that all the time. I just thought it was normal,” she explained.
Businesswoman Siobhan, who founded Netmums, then praised Davina for normalising her feelings. She said, “That’s great that you thought that. Well done for accepting it.”
Davina continued with the discussion, asking, “When is it not normal, and how do we know?”
Mum blogger Jem, who herself has experienced post-natal depression, revealed that often, thoughts can spiral out of control.
She said, “I think, when it gets to a point that you don’t want to do anything. And you think you’re going to harm your baby just by going out with them because you’re going to get run over, that’s not a normal thought.
“You should be able to walk down the street with your baby and not think a car is going to crash into you.”
Siobhan also advised any women suffering after giving birth to visit their GP, to get help with how they’re feeling.
Mental health charity Mind can provide support if you feel you are struggling with your thoughts after giving birth.
