Many debilitating conditions go unheard of until they're lent a voice by someone famous. Thankfully, for many women diagnosed with postpartum depression (PPD), celeb moms like Chrissy Teigen -- who penned a moving piece in Glamour about her struggle -- have admitted they've suffered as well, and have helped to destigmatize this common struggle.


Unlike "baby blues," which is marked by mood swings and crying spells that come and go pretty quickly, postpartum depression, which affects one in seven mothers, can linger longer and be more intense. The condition can also create challenges with caring for your little one and other daily tasks. In other words, it can be downright debilitating, and women suffering from it need support.

If only for that reason, it's heartening to see celebrities speaking and writing about their own personal experiences. Here are 17 stars' most poignant quotes about facing postpartum depression.
