Britney Spears Opens Up About Her Perinatal Depression

Britney Spears is getting as real as she can get. The former chart topper has opened up about her experience with perinatal depression. Here’s what you need to know.

In her pregnancy announcement, Britney opened up about suffering with her depression for the first time. The singer, who is expecting her third child with her fiancé Sam Asgahi (it will be his first), posted, “It’s hard because when I was pregnant I had perinatal depression… I have to say it is absolutely horrible. Women didn’t talk about it back then… Some people considered it dangerous if a woman complained like that with a baby inside her… But now women talk about it every day.”

This comes after Britney admitted that she is writing a tell-all memoir. Last month Britney confirmed she is writing a book about her life, and said the process has been “healing and therapeutic.” It was reported the singer had landed the book deal a month ago and Spears confirmed it on Instagram, saying there were parts of her life she had never been able to talk openly about before.

In the now deleted post, she said: “It’s also hard bringing up past events in my life…I’ve never been able to express openly. I can only imagine that I do sound childish but I was extremely young when those events took place … and addressing it now, I’m sure it seems irrelevant to most. I’m completely aware of that. But instead of using my heart I’m using the intellectual approach.”

So far Britney has not revealed any details about her due date or when her book is coming out for that matter. We will definitely update you with all of the latest details as they come in.
