Swara Bhasker reveals how postpartum depression has made her feel off lately

In a candid confession to ETimes, Swara Bhasker opened up about suffering from postpartum depression after the birth of her daughter, Raabiyaa. She mentioned that while the condition is different for each and every woman out there, in her condition, she feels like adapting to a new life and a new person herself. Swara mentioned:

“Postpartum depression is personal and unique to each person. The degrees are different, the experience is singular. Its one of those experiences that unless you’ve been through it, there is actually no way of understanding what it is and what it does to you. I am only eight months postpartum so I’m in the throes of adapting to this new life, new body, new soul and new me. I haven’t isolated myself.”
