She went to Instagram to share a quote that has everyone wondering if she’s suffering from postpartum depression.

What is postpartum depression?

The Mayo Clinic defines postpartum depression as a condition after birth that “commonly includes mood swings, crying spells, anxiety and difficulty sleeping. Baby blues usually begin within the first 2 to 3 days after delivery and may last for up to two weeks. But some new moms experience a more severe, long-lasting form of depression known as postpartum depression.”

The site goes on to say that postpartum depression is not a character flaw or weakness but rather can be a complication that occurs after childbirth.

Leighton turned a month old this past week. Hopefully, Liz will begin feeling more like herself in the coming weeks. But, while she’s struggling her family is there to lend a helping hand and she seems eternally grateful.
