Gwyneth Paltrow first opened up about her postpartum depression in 2011.
Speaking with Good Housekeeping, the actress revealed that after the 2006 birth of her son, Moses, she felt “like a zombie” and “couldn’t connect.”
Eventually, Paltrow, 46, was diagnosed with PPD — and she overcame the condition without any medication.“A doctor tried to put me on antidepressants and I thought, if I need them, yes, I’ll come back to it,” Paltrow explained on the Wednesday, September 26, episode of her goop Podcast.
The Oscar winner noted that drugs are “lifesavers for certain people for sure” but explained she had success with alternative therapies. “I started exercising again, and I stopped drinking alcohol and I gave myself a period of regeneration and I slept more,” the Goop CEO said. “I really broke out of it.”
Paltrow On JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE – ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ airs every weeknight at 11:35 p.m. EST and features a diverse lineup of guests that include celebrities, athletes, musical acts, comedians and human-interest subjects, along with comedy bits and a house band. The guests for Monday, June 5 included Gwyneth Paltrow (Goop), Sean Diddy Combs (Cant Stop Wont Stop: A Bad Boy Story) and musical guest Ryan Adams.
Paltrow, who shares Moses, 12, and Apple, 14, with her ex-husband Chris Martin, was shocked by her body’s reaction to giving birth the second time. “I was so euphoric when Apple was born, and I assumed it would happen with Mosey and it just . . . it took a while,” she recalled in another goop Podcast that aired in April.
“I really went into a dark place.”Postpartum depression affects 1 in 8 women, according to Dr. Diane Sanford, author of Life Will Never Be the Same: The Real Mom’s Postpartum Survival Guide. “The baby blues is time-limited and hormonally-driven and eases int he first two to four weeks,” Dr. Sanford previously told Us Weekly.
“Postpartum gets worse over time and symptoms increase in frequency and severity. If you don’t fully recover from it, you’re more at risk for subsequent episodes of anxiety and depression.”

Sergio Busquets has signed a new five-year deal with Barcelona containing a staggering £445million release clause.
The midfielder has put pen to paper on a contract that will run until the end of the 2022-23 season, and could ultimately see him finish his career at his boyhood club.
An influential figure at the Nou Camp, Busquets, who was named one of the club’s captains earlier this summer, has also seen his buyout clause rise from around £178m to £445m as Barcelona seek to keep hold of one of their prized assets.

The 30-year-old has enjoyed a glittering career with Barcelona up to now, winning seven La Liga titles and three Champions Leagues after coming through under Pep Guardiola. Busquets was, however, also part of manager Ernesto Valverde’s side that lost 2-1 away to Leganes in a shock result on Wednesday evening.
And following swiftly on from their 2-2 home draw with Girona over the weekend, the midfielder admitted after the match that he was worried about the club’s leaky defense.
‘The other day the point was different,’ he told reporters. ‘Today we have no excuse because we played 11 against 11.’We should have been solid but we have given chances away and it has cost us a lot.’I am worried about conceding goals.’Barcelona face Athletic Bilbao next up at the Nou Camp on Saturday as they look to get back on track.
