Una Healy Battled Post-partum Depression
The Saturdays singer has revealed she secretly suffered from the baby blues after giving birth to daughter Aoife Belle, her first child with rugby player Ben Foden.
She tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "I got quite teary. They call it the fourth day blues. I really missed being pregnant and having her to myself. When she's out there, she's out there for everyone to look at. She's not just yours any more."
Healy admits her decision to opt out of breastfeeding so she could continue performing plunged her into a further slump.
She adds, "The fact that I wasn't going to breastfeed her made me feel a bit of the blues. I would really love to, but because of work and everything I wasn't able to. I just knew it wouldn't be practical to be performing on stage with big leaky boobs full of milk."
