Nikki shares postpartum depression experience

During the latest, The Bellas Podcast, Nikki told her sister Brie Bella that she has been feeling depressed because of moving out of her Arizona home barely seven weeks after Matteo’s birth. She has also been stressed about the filling of the reality show Total Bellas and with her fiancé Artem Chigvintsev who is away competing o Dancing with stars with Kaitlyn Bristowe. The breakdown came after Brie asked her how she was doing.

Nikki said that her sister was the first person that asked her after weeks how she was doing. She says that she was almost saying she is fine, but her lips were shaking, and she burst into tears. This was because it was the first time someone had tried to ask how she was doing in a while, and she wasn’t doing fine. She told Brie that she loves being the best and want to be number one, which is a mentality she has taken as a mom. Also, she added that she prided herself on being strong and fighting a lot of mental issues.

Nikki sought help to realize she is depressed

Despite being a strong person, Nikki revealed that postpartum has been something different that has knocked her down. Nikki said she didn’t want to help take care of her son while shooting Total Bellas, and she ended up in a massive breakdown. The former WWE star said that she has been an athlete, a mentality she took in Matteo’s caring all her life.

After she realized she needed help, she discussed with her doctor, confirming that she was falling into postpartum depression. Nikki said that she didn’t realize that after seven weeks, one can come out of baby blues and go a different path of either being healthy or being depressed and the depression path is a bad one and a dark hole.
