Alanis Morissette has had a years-long battle with postpartum depression. In a recent interview with Self she explained how she’s fought it twice and will be preparing to tackle it again when baby number three is born. “For me I would just wake up and feel like I was covered in tar and it wasn’t the first time I’d experienced depression so I just thought Oh, well, this feels familiar, I’m depressed, I think,” she said. “And then simultaneously, my personal history of depression where it was so normalized for me to be in the quicksand, as I call it, or in the tar. It does feel like tar, like everything feels heavy.”

She previously opened up in an interview with People about how 14 months after the birth of her daughter Onyx Solace, her postpartum depression was crippling. “There are days I’m debilitated to the point where I can barely move… As a kid, I imagined having children and being with an amazing partner. This is a whole other wrench I didn’t anticipate.”
