Hayden Panettiere has been publicly discussing the issue of postpartum depression and admitting that it was something she had experienced herself after the birth of her 10 month old daughter, Kaya. However, it sounds like the ‘Nashville’ star was struggling more than we knew: she has entered treatment to get help for her postpartum depression.
Just a few days ago, Hayden tweeted:

Hayden’s rep released a statement:
Hayden Panettiere is voluntarily seeking professional help at a treatment center as she is currently battling postpartum depression. She asks that the media respect her privacy during this time.”
No more details have been provided. It’s good that the ‘Nashville’ star is getting help: she’s absolutely right that it is a very real medical condition that new mothers should not be ashamed of. Hopefully Hayden finds her treatment helpful.
