Summer Walker Talks About Her Postpartum Depression And Being A Single Parent
On Thursday’s episode of Caresha Please, Atlanta singer-songwriter Summer Walker appeared with rapper Yung Miami. They discussed postpartum depression, motherhood, and the power of therapy. When Summer Walker first met her therapist, she cried because she did not understand it, and she used to call it “that white people shit.” While smoking hookah, she said, She caught me in a fucking meltdown in the dressing room. “Just the day she’s here,” I thought. There’s a good chance she’ll think I’m crazy. Due to her social anxiety, Walker cancelled part of her First and Last tour in 2019. In an Instagram reel last year, the singer addressed her anxiety and continued to spread awareness. I just want to say that I hear you if you are struggling with social anxiety or feeling out of place, she captioned her collaboration with Mindset. In addition to discussing their struggles with postpartum depression, Summer Walker and Yung Miami also discussed finding balance as mothers. Walker believes that postpartum occurs when women do not have the support they need.
I personally think it was a lack of support for me, rather than a hormonal imbalance… There was no reason for my depression, it wasn’t because of the child. My heart belonged to her. It was just that I needed help. Since I have three, I’m like, oh my God, I’m so happy,” she said, adding that she now has the support she needs. Her first child, Bubbles, was born in 2021 to producer London on da Track. Her ex-boyfriend, a rapper named Larry, and she had twins recently. In addition to healing, Yung Miami said she had to learn how to adjust to a new era, such as becoming a mother and being responsible. In response, Summer Walker said, You still have to make time for yourself.” If you want to stay cute, if you want to take a bath, go to the spa, or go on a trip, whatever it is, you have to make time for it. So long as you carve out that time, you won’t feel like you’re missing anything. As far as I am concerned, I have no shame. As soon as my children go to sleep. “I hit the streets,” she said jokingly. Her latest EP Clear 2: Soft Life focuses less on rehashing the past than finding peace and growth following the standout Over It (and its worthy follow-up Still Over It) from 2019.
