Actress Hayden Panettiere is seeking treatment for her postpartum depression.
The ‘Nashville’ star has checked into a facility to help her overcome depression following the birth of ten-month-old Kaya , her first child with fiancé Wladamir Klitschko.
Her spokesperson said: “Hayden is voluntarily seeking professional help at a treatment centre as she is currently battling postpartum depression. She asks that the media respect her privacy during this time.”
The 26-year-old beauty previously insisted postpartum depression should be “talked about” more .
She shared: “I can very much relate. It’s something a lot of women experience.
“When you’re told about postpartum depression you think it’s, ‘I feel negative feelings towards my child, I want to injure or hurt my child’ – I’ve never, ever had those feelings.
“Some women do. But you don’t realise how broad of a spectrum you can really experience that on. It’s something that needs to be talked about. Women need to know that they’re not alone, and that it does heal.
