Panettiere gave birth to her daughter Kaya last December, and in October the 26-year-old checked into a facility because she was suffering from postpartum depression. (RELATED: Kim Kardashian Decides Whether Newborn Son Will Appear On TV)

“It’s something a lot of women experience,” Panettiere said during an earlier interview. “When [you are told] about postpartum depression you think it’s ‘I feel negative feelings towards my child; I want to injure or hurt my child.'”

“I’ve never, ever had those feelings. Some women do.”

“But, you don’t realize how broad of a spectrum you can really experience that on. It’s something that needs to be talked about. Women need to know that they’re not alone, and that it does heal.” (SLIDESHOW: These Hot Ladies Are Ready For Labor Day)
