'I COULDN'T FEEL MY LEGS' JENNY POWELL OPENS UP ABOUT EXPERIENCING POST-NATAL DEPRESSION

Jenny opened up on the show about her experience of post-natal depression after having her second daughter, telling Andrea, Stacey, Janet and Nadia, 'I definitely lost my confidence and self-esteem during postnatal depression, I didn't want to work again.'

'I had this baby lying next to me and I couldn't relate to her,' Jenny explained. 'There was one morning in January, Pollyanna was 10-weeks-old, and I just woke up and I thought, "I can't feel my legs". Because I don't want to. I don't want to get up, walk and get out of bed. I thought if I don't do something for myself now, it's going to be that downward spiral into darkness.'

'It was interesting listening to what you were talking about earlier, about bottling up your feelings and not talking about it – which is something that I did,' Jane explained.
