“I’ve not been feeling myself the last couple of weeks, which is pretty tough to admit,” Giovanna wrote on Instagram.

“I’ve tried to say it out loud a couple of times and then totally dismissed it and brushed it under the carpet. I have found myself saying, ‘I’m not feeling myself, but it’s fine. I’m fine.’ Hmm…

“I’m fine but sometimes I don’t want to get out of bed in the morning. I don’t want to get dressed. I don’t want to see people. I don’t want to do anything. I’m fine but I’ve been crying for no reason and occasionally can’t seem to stop.

“I’m not feeling myself right now but I’ve just welcomed my third baby into the world and am so incredibly lucky.

“I’m not feeling myself right now BUT thankfully I have a great bunch of people around me who are giving me lots of support and making sure I’m kinder to myself.

“We must be kinder to ourselves! And we must talk. I wasn’t going to add to the amazing conversations happening around mental health today, but seeing as they’ve all helped me, I thought adding to it might just help some others. Be kinder and talk. Xxx #maternalmentalhealth #worldmentalhealthday.”

It’s absolutely crucial to speak up about your mental health if you’re struggling.

Most people feel low on occasion, but it’s affecting your everyday life, there are a number of supports available.

Try talking to a friend or relative about your feelings, said the NHS.

If you struggle to speak to someone you know, a health professional or counsellor may be better suited to your needs.

There are also a number of mindfulness techniques that aim to help your brain focus on the present moments.

If you’re struggling with your mental health, and it’s impacting your daily life, try speaking to a doctor.
