Melissa Rycroft: “I Was In Such Denial That It Was Postpartum Depression”

The Bachelor alum Melissa Rycroft now has a reality TV show of her own. The CMT reality series, Melissa & Tye, chronicles Melissa's family life with husband Tye Strickland and their 14-month-old daughter Ava.

The TV star opens up to Celebrity Baby Scoop about her "wholesome family reality show" and how she's safeguarding her family-of-three from the 'reality TV curse.' In a candid discussion, Melissa shares her struggles with postpartum depression, admitting she was "in denial" for a long time and is "still a bit reluctant to talk about it." She's coming forward with her story to empower women and help shatter some of the shame surrounding PPD. "I think there's a lot of shame because we don't understand it," she says.
