Dani Barretto: “You have no idea how many times I cried.”
DANI BARRETTO – The content creator opened up to the public about her postpartum depression.
On her Instagram account, Dani shared a photo of herself during the first two months of her postpartum and her current appearance.
“This was a loooooong and painful journey and I’m not done yet,” she wrote as the caption. “You have no idea how many times I cried in front of the mirror because my clothes don’t fit me anymore, or how hideous I thought I looked.”
According to the sister of Julia Barretto, she only returns to herself when she sees or hears her daughter Millie.
“Then I caught myself in between a breakdown one morning, because I heard my daughter’s laugh from downstairs,” she said.
When she hears the laughter of her child, her self-doubts vanish and realized that her child needs a healthy mother.
“I remembered what matters the most. All my insecurities just faded away. The weight I can lose, Millie needs a healthy Momma, physically and mentally,” she said.
In the end, Dani Barretto gave advice to her fellow moms who are also going through the same depression.
“So to all the moms out there who’s going through the same thing, YOU ARE ENOUGH. You birthed a beautiful baby in this world, you’re a superwoman! Never forget how strong you are. Keep going and never give up,” she said.
Dani Barretto married her husband Xavi Panlilio in 2019 before Millie was born in September of the same year.
