Bollywood actress Shweta Kawatra recently broke her silence on suffering from postpartum depression after giving birth to her daughter.
The Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki actress appeared on Akshay Kumar movie Ram Setu and also did a fantasy show Baal Veer.
Speaking about challenges, Kawatra said, "I was not just low, I had brain fog. I had panic attacks. I would be angry for no reason. I used to feel helpless, I was suicidal and this was a very hopeless situation."
The 46-year-old revealed that she gained 30kgs after delivering a baby and added that she started working out only after she felt fine.
"I did Baal Veer because I lost all confidence. In depression, you want to isolate yourself. You feel very conscious of yourself and you feel very unconfident. They (makers) were kind enough to support my timings. And, I did it only to build my confidence back"
Further, she added: "My daughter is 10 now and it took me five years to breathe easy. Now, I want to take care of my daughter with less burden and not be overwhelmed with depression. I think I can now balance my work and family."
