The soon-to-be mother of three has always been candid about her motherhood ever since she had her first child, Ever Imre, on Christmas Day in 2010. His little sister, Onyx Solace, was born shortly thereafter in June 2016. Accompanying her on both occasions however was postpartum depression which she had revealed when opening up to PEOPLE in September 2017.
“There are days I’m debilitated to the point where I can barely move,” the Grammy winner said at the time. “As a kid, I imagined having children and being with an amazing partner. This is a whole other wrench I didn’t anticipate.”
The musician did not stay silent about her struggle with PPD. “The stigma remains the same in a big way,” Morissette said.
“There’s this version of eye contact that I have with women who have been through postpartum depression where it’s this silent, ‘Oh my God, I love you. I’m so sorry.’ “
