- Melai Cantiveros admitted on “Magandang Buhay” that she struggled greatly after giving birth to her second child
- It turned out that she was experiencing postpartum depression
- Fortunately, Melai was able to fight through her condition for the good of her baby
Melai Cantiveros revealed that she suffered from postpartum depression after giving birth to her baby girl Stella, her second child with husband Jason Francisco.
KAMI learned from PEP.ph that Melai admitted her struggles on “Magandang Buhay.”
“Ang postpartum pala, natatakot ako sa iyak ng anak ko. Natatakot akong hawakan siya.
“Kapag umiiyak siya, nagkukulong na ako sa kabilang kuwarto. Ayoko nang marinig na umiiyak siya.
“Para akong baliw, totoo talaga yun, para akong baliw,” she explained.
Fortunately, Melai fought through her depression and was able to recover eventually.
“Thank you, Lord, na napagtagumpayan ko na hindi na ako natatakot sa iyak niya.
“Kapag umiiyak siya, sinasabihan ko, ‘Naku, chinachar-char mo lang ako.’ Ginaganun ko siya,” the host said.
Melai and Jason have been married for over four years now.
The married couple separated due to their issues with each other but decided to get back together because of their love for each other and their children.
Her first baby, Mela, was born in 2014.
Stella, on the other hand, was born in April 2017.
