We are so lucky that we live in a world where you are allowed to openly talk about your problems. A couple of decades ago, people were not supposed to talk about their problems and psychological problems were a special kind of taboo. Now, men and women from all around the world are encouraged to talk about their issues in order to find an adequate solution or simply a relief.

Celebrities have supported the trend and their statements made us realize that we are not alone and that everyone has problems no matter who they are. Lately, celebrity moms are speaking out about the #Postpartum Depression. After Courtney Cox, Amanda Peet, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Brooke Shields opened up about their postpartum depression experience, actress #Sarah Michelle Gellar decided to do the same.
