Melai revealed she went through postpartum depression. According to her, she experienced some of the symptoms including crying episodes, anxiety, and irritability.

“Grabe. Ang hirap. Ayoko na lang magsalita pero feeling ko nung nanganak ako parang nakalamang ako sa ibang babae kasi parang napagtagumpayan ko ‘yung paglabas dun sa [bata]. Lumabas talaga ‘yung bata doon,” said Melai.

“Iyak ako ng iyak dahil hindi ako makapaniwala na may batang, may taong lumabas… Na-amaze ako masyado. Panginoon, totoo ba ‘to?” added Melai.

The Queen of All Media Kris Aquino also witnessed this stage on Melai’s life and was shocked on her behavior.

Melai further said, “Maldita ako sa kanya [sa baby ko].”

However, Melai was able to pass this stage on her life as Jason helped her in taking care of baby Mela.
