 Billie  Piper  Reveals  Struggle  With   Postnatal Depression
Billie Piper, the English actress has revealed about her struggle with postnatal depression following her son's birth.

Piper, 27, who went through a difficult 26-hour labour and emergency Caesarean to have baby Winston, said she had a harrowing time when she returned to work after five months as a screen prostitute on hit TV series 'Secret Diary of a Call Girl'.The doctor said I had post-natal depression," News of the World quoted her as saying.

"Secret Diary was a stressful time. I had started leaving Winston. I was finishing breast-feeding, which is really emotional.

"I don't know what warrants post-natal depression," she said.

But she was determined to fight the baby blues and refused to take any medication.

"They prescribed pills but I never took them. Pills frighten me. They're a road to nowhere. I feel I'm too strong in mind and spirit for pills," she said.

"I didn't feel it was that desperate - it was just a bad day," she added.
