Alanis Morissette breastfeeds on the cover of a magazine and talks about postnatal mental health

-

Alanis Morissette has long been open to her mental health, including what she expresses in her songs. In one of her most open interviews, the 45-year-old shares details of how some of her most vulnerable moments came about after the birth of her children.

She describes Morissette’s postpartum experience with her 8-year-old son Ever Imrie and her 2-year-old daughter Onyx Solace as “depression plus” because she has dealt with baseline depression for most of her depression. “I had depression, but I wouldn’t have these invasive thoughts so much,” she said. “It’s invasive thoughts about these horrible, terrible pictures, and they come often at night. So it’s depression and you panic every 10 seconds.”

Fortunately, with her youngest son Winter, who was born last summer, she said that she hadn’t dealt with so much darkness and said, “It’s mostly fear and almost no depression.” And just as she is open when it comes to talking about her feelings, Morissette said that she teaches her children to do the same with hers.

“We talk about therapy all the time,” she said. “And then, with feelings, it’s a big deal for me to let them feel all the way through. I want to make them feel like they’re not alone, that I’m here and they can feel it to the end. “

By talking about her motherly experience, in addition to taking photos while breastfeeding, Morissette hopes to provide support and understanding to other mothers. “I love women. I love mothers so much,” she said. “I just think mothers are so selfless day after day – women just kill it all the time. And they suffer so often or not so quietly and always go still – functioning sufferers. “
