Brooke Shields says her postpartum depression created problems in her marriage
Brooke Shields is worried that the postpartum depression she suffered after the birth of her daughter Rowan has permanently ruined the trust between her and her husband Chris Henchy. Brooke says Chris was helpful when she was dealing with the severe lows of her depression but that he always fears his wife is heading for another crash.
Brooke said, "Damage gets done. The baby is fine… but other people in my life, my husband, if I have a bad day, he looks at me, thinking, ‘Oh God, it’s going to come back again.’ There’s a lack of trust that was there at one time and I think that that’s damaging, and that’s damage to our relationship."
Brooke recently published Down Came the Rain : My Journey Through Postpartum Depression, a memoir about her postpartum depression.
