Zola Mhlongo opens up on postpartum depression

Zola Mhlongo has taken to her social media to open up on postpartum depression.

The new mother welcomed her baby on October 20 and she has decided to speak on the importance of self-care.


Zola has been sharing her maternity journey as a first time parent with her followers, and took to Instagram stories to reveal that she had experienced exhaustion and postpartum depression.

“I promised myself a self-care journey after giving birth, simply because the journey of parenting is not easy and you forget about yourself so easily,” she wrote.


“Postpartum depression is real with all the life changes a mother goes through, and let me not even start with the waves of exhaustion I’ve been experiencing. So I am actively going to fetch my life.”
