Alanis Morissette talks about pregnancy

Her path to motherhood was not easy at all.

Between Ever and Onyx there were some false starts. I always wanted to have three kids, and then I've had some challenges and some miscarriages so I just didn't think it was possible.

Alanis Morissette has recently opened up about pregnancy at 45 and her postpartum depression. It was a very hard interview for the star, but she decided to share her story with other women in other to show they are not alone with their difficulties.

It's this whole chemistry of emotions. Hormones and chemicals that are just coursing through your body. It [can] be triggering, or flashbacking, or re-traumatizing.

She also talked about the way pregnancies affect our bodies and souls.

There are so many ways pregnancy can affect you. I was ready for the ride. My first two pregnancies have been gradually becoming more proprioceptive, more attuned to the subtleties that are going on [in my body].

Experiencing postpartum illness was a hard experience as well.

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. 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.

You continue to inspire and amaze. I’m totally stealing The 4 Boundaries and incorporating it into my own life (but I’ll credit you as author). I adore you, God. Keep dazzling.

@mrosnov

Alanis, for 25 years I’ve been a fan of everything you say, sing and do. Your children are so blessed and lucky to have you as an influence and guide through this life. Keep being amazing!

Aww my husband and I are trying to get pregnant. This gives me hope. It's disturbing to me how young we are able to get pregnant as women. Seeing women get pregnant older and older makes me feel so much better. Our brains are not developed until we are 28!!!! I'm 32 now and we are ready to have a kid 😊 I'm so happy for you.

You look beautiful..just radiant! Thank you for sharing your journey of pregnancy at 45. I'm 40 and pregnant and hear such mixed things.. even though baby and I are doing so well and feeling great. You inspire me and others. You sharing also sets the stage for myself and other mothers to feel liberated and confident that this IS the new norm..to have beautiful healthy babies later in life. Thank YOU! 💖🌺💃🎶🎉
