My post natal depression was debilitating and scary – I couldn’t enjoy anything with my son, reveals Towie's Jess Wright | The Sun

TOWIE star Jess Wright has revealed that she couldn't enjoy anything with her son because of her post natal depression.

The 37-year-old and husband William Lee-Kemp, 35, welcomed Presley into the world in May last year.

A few months after giving birth Jess opened up about her mental health struggles, explaining that her post natal depression took away her new-mum happiness.

Giovanna Fletcher touched upon it again in the most recent episode of the Happy Mum Happy Baby podcast, saying that calling it "baby blues" is "totally dismissive of what it is".

Jess said: "Totally, because I thought when they said that it was just like ‘Oh you might feel down for a couple of days, because it’s called the baby blues.’

"I’m like, ‘You’re just totally disguising post natal depression, which is debilitating'.

"I had that for a month, and then all of a sudden it just lifted."

She continued: "It’s more scary because A, I didn’t know how long it was going to last. Some women suffer for like six months, and some more.

"And B, I just couldn’t enjoy anything with him. I was just like on my last nerve. That's the only way I can describe it.

"My friends came around a few days later and I just collapsed and I was like 'I'm on my last nerve and I don't know which way to turn'.

"Not only am I on my last nerve with this baby because something wasn't right, he was constipated at that point, but also, I've never felt a level of lowness… well I have, but I feel that level of lowness right now, which isn't nice, I've just had a baby."

Jess also gave some guidance to those suffering.

She said: "My biggest piece of advice in terms of depression or anxiety, or post-natal depression, is 100 per cent tell someone how you’re feeling.

"They’re never going to judge you; they’re always going to be there for you if they love you.

"And there’s so many others who are suffering."

Jess delivered her baby boy by emergency C-section five days before her due date.

Sharing the news on Instagram, she posted a shot of her and husband William holding the tot's hand and tagging in London's Portland private hospital.

The star revealed the baby was born last week writing: "We will hold your hand forever 🕊💙 17~05~22."

Jess and William tied the knot in 2021 after going official with their relationship in 2019.
