Reality star Monica “Danger” Leon has admitted that she suffered from post-partum depression after the birth of her daughter. The new mom, who welcomed her first child in October, was reportedly admitted to a psychiatric ward earlier this month for a mental breakdown. Monica has since been released and is doing “fine”.
“Postpartum depression is a period of time of extreme vulnerability to depression shortly after giving birth. There is a difference between postpartum depression and the postpartum “blues.” The blues are a brief period where women will become tearful or very sensitive with severe mood swings.
