Mean Suvari welcomed her first child Christropher Alexander Hope into this world 18 months ago but she is still struggling with the aftereffects of the pregnancy.

On Rachel Bilson’s Broad Ideas podcast, the star revealed that she struggles with postpartum depression. She said that she didn’t want to sugarcoat the truth that she hasn’t been her happiest self lately.

She said that although her husband Mike Hope is wonderful and her newborn son is perfectly healthy she is still entitled to feel a certain way about the entire scenario.

When did she meet her husband?

Hope works in the film and television industries as a set decorator and prop master. They first met in 2016 while she was working as an actress and he was the set decorator for the Hallmark movie I’ll Be Home for Christmas.

Suvari and Hope have been married since October 2018 and in October 2020, Suvari announced she was expecting their first child together.

She openly discussed the pressure and self-doubt she had while trying to conceive, as well as the doctors who warned her she wouldn’t be able to have children due to her advanced age.

How did postpartum affect her life?

She mentioned finding it hard to step out of the house because she feels the pressure to be with her son 24/7 as the fear of raising a good human being takes over her mind.

Most new moms experience postpartum “baby blues” after childbirth, which commonly include mood swings, crying spells, anxiety and difficulty sleeping. Baby blues usually begin within the first 2 to 3 days after delivery and may last for up to two weeks.

But some new moms experience a more severe, long-lasting form of depression known as postpartum depression.

She opened up about her struggles with postpartum in hopes that her honestly will help spread a little courage to all the women over the world struggling with the lows and highs of motherhood.
