Julia Haworth's Postpartum Depression Fears Unfounded
Portraying a mom suffering from postpartum depression proved to be emotionally draining for Coronation Street star Julia Haworth. It also left the 29-year-old actress wondering whether she would have a similar experience after welcoming her daughter Sophia Elizabeth, 6 weeks. "No one’s immune," Julia points out in a new interview with The Mirror, "but I hoped I’d be OK…luckily I am." While labor was long and difficult Sophia arrived "safe and well and that’s the main thing," Julia says. "She was worth it…I’d go through every second again." That sunny outlook extends even to her pregnancy, a state of being that Julia says she "loved."
"When people said I was blooming and blossoming, I took it as a compliment…I didn’t mind my body changing. As I got bigger I really celebrated it because it meant the baby was growing and was healthy."
Adding that she wants to be "the best mum in the world," Julia says Sophia is "the center of my life now." She is the first child for Julia and her husband Jon Wormald.
