After giving birth to daughter Lola Sofia in 2005, Wilson Phillips singer Carnie Wilson felt an overwhelming sense of sadness and experienced frequent bouts of crying. "It's a physical feeling,” she told “People.” “I don't know how to describe it. You're overwhelmed with love and joy, then sadness and fear. You're so afraid you're going to fail this baby. What if you drop her or hurt her? She's totally dependent on you, and it's scary."
In a later interview with “People,” Wilson admitted that she also had postpartum hallucinations after Lola Sofia’s birth, saying, “I looked over at Lola from across the hospital room, and this voice was like, ‘I’m the devil. I’m the devil, and I’m gonna kill you.’ And I thought, ‘Okay, that’s a psychotic thought. That’s not me — something else in there is saying that.’ And I didn’t have any urge to hurt the baby, but it was just a horrible thought. I just wanted it to go away really badly.”
Wilson was featured in “When the Bough Breaks,” a feature-length documentary about postpartum depression, produced and narrated by Brooke Shields.
