Back in September, the actress made an appearance on Live! With Kelly and Michael, where she talked about her battle with postpartum depression.
"It's something a lot of women experience. When [you are 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.”
The Nashville star added, “It's something that needs to be talked about. Women need to know that they're not alone, and that it does heal."
