Adele is showing her support to moms battling postpartum psychosis, through her support to her best friend who showed off on her Instagram page.
The singer, 30, took to Instagram on Monday to praise her best friend, Laura Dockrill, for being vocal about her ongoing battle.
“This is my best friend,” Adele wrote alongside a photo of the pair. “We have been best friends for more of our lives than we haven’t.”
The mom-of-one then explained Dockrill’s backstory, “She had my beautiful godson 6-months ago and it was the biggest challenge of her life in more ways than one. She has written the most intimate, witty, heartbreaking and articulate piece about her experience of becoming a new mom and being diagnosed with postpartum psychosis.”
Then she went ahead to encourage mothers to be more open about their struggles. She added, “Mamas, talk about how you’re feeling because in some cases it could save yours or someone else’s life.”
In the touching emotional article, Dockrill opened up about her fight: “It’s not easy to admit that the worst time of your life was when your baby was born. Social media gives a very shiny exterior of life to be frank and it’s not the full picture, so I wanted to unlock some doors and be honest – I’ve been somewhere I can’t unsee and – in case there is anybody out there struggling – to open up a dialogue and say it’s okay. You are not broken.”
