Ivanka Trump Talks Postpartum Depression: It Was ‘Very Challenging’ And ‘Emotional’
The first daughter was on Dr. Oz where she decided to open up for the first time about her struggle with postpartum depression. Ivanka Trump also revealed that she was affected by it to some extent following each of her three births.
As you may already be aware, 35-year-old Ivanka has been married to 36-year-old Jared Kushner for the past eight years, and they have three kids together.
‘It was a very challenging, emotional time for me because I felt like I wasn’t living up to my potential as a parent or as an entrepreneur and as an executive. And I had had such easy pregnancies that in some way the juxtaposition hit me even harder,’ she shared on the popular show.
In addition, she also joked about being asked the question unexpectedly but explained that no matter how successful or how happy, driven, determined or passionate you are, postpartum depression can still hit you and a significant number of women across the country are battling it.
That being said, it looks like the woman thought it was an important opportunity to bring more awareness to an illness that is usually ignored.
Despite the fact that the politician and businesswoman has never been scared to share her views on many topics, this is the first time she truly let herself be vulnerable by revealing a personal struggle.
