Feb 8: Cardi B battled postpartum depression following the birth of her daughter last summer.
The rapper tells Harper’s Bazaar she tried to “avoid” the mood-affecting condition, which affects several new moms, but she couldn’t keep the baby blues at bay.
The 26-year old says, “When I gave birth, the doctor told me about postpartum, and I was like, ‘Well, I’m doing good right now, I don’t think that’s going to happen’.”
But her feelings changed days after she welcomed her first child, Kulture: “Out of nowhere, the world was heavy on my shoulders,” she adds.
In addition to coping with postpartum, the I Like It hitmaker admits she has struggled with her body image now she’s a mom.
“For some reason, I still don’t feel like my body’s the same,” she tells the publication. “I feel like I don’t have my balance right yet. When it comes to heels, I’m not as good at walking anymore. I feel like I’m holding a weight on me.”
