Billie has revealed that her return to her role on TV series, ‘Secret Diary Of A Call Girl’, five months after having son Winston triggered postnatal depression (PND). “It was a stressful time, I had started leaving Winston and I was finishing breastfeeding, which is really emotional,” the actress confessed to Glamour magazine.
The actress refused medication to tackle the problem. “They prescribed pills but I never took them,” she said. “Pills frighten me.”
The mum-of-one has since recovered fully and revealed she’s become more body confident since becoming a mum, saying; “I’m definitely more comfortable in my own skin than I was 10 years ago.”
