“When Zuri was born, I cried all the time. I was just not feeling myself, the way I used to. My friend Laura would come up and rock him to sleep. When women go through this, they don’t know that they’re going through postpartum depression. They just think that that’s the way it’s supposed to be for them. They never check it. I went through a dark period, for a moment, and then I snapped out of it. When you’re going through postpartum depression, those feelings are very normal. Don’t beat yourself up. Raise that baby.”

-Patti Labelle opens up about her experience with postpartum depression during an appearance on Oprah’s Master Class on Sunday, Nov. 22, 2015.
