Celebrity Mom Ellie Goulding Opens Up About Postnatal Depression

Ellie Goulding has opened up about her struggle with postpartum depression, which is reported to affect more than 1 in 10 parents in the UK within one year of giving birth.

The singer and songwriter welcomed her son Arthur into the world in 2021, and credits nature’s healing power with helping her recover.

The Healing Power of Nature: How Nature Walks Helped Me Overcome My ‘Numbness’ During a guest edit on Radio 4’s Today, Ellie Goulding talks about how walking in the countryside helped her overcome her ‘numbness’.
