You don't have to have struggled with postpartum depression to know how serious it can be,for mother and baby.And whenrumors surfacedthat Angelina Jolie was suffering from more than just the baby blues,I felt for her (even if she does have access to fabulous nannies,night nurses,and the best doctors in the world).But,if she truly is struggling with postpartum depression,she's doing all she can to push through it ...

Have you been affected by postpartum depression?如果是这样,how did you pull through?
