    Sadie Frost suffered "very serious" post-natal depression after having her children with Jude Law

    The 56-year-old fashion designer was married to the actor between 1997 and 2003 and the pair share children Rafferty, 24, Iris, 20 and Rudy, 19, but she revealed that having the kids so close together took its toll on her mental health

    Speaking on 'The Moments That Made Me' podcast with Roxie Nafousi, Sadie said: "Because I had had two children very close together and my life was going a hundred miles an hour, I got very serious post-natal depression. And that is when my whole world came caving in and it was scary for quite a few years on a daily basis."

    The actress and fashion designer explained that the experience taught her not to "undermine" the importance of her mental health and helped her to understand the "bigger picture".

    Sadie said: "I fought really hard and what it taught me was one, don't undermine ever having your sanity, your confidence or your self-esteem and it showed me to have compassion and understand the bigger picture."

    Sadie – who also shares son Finlay with Spandau Ballet star Gary Kemp – believes her battle with post-natal depression "moulded" her into the person she is now.

    She explained: "It made me more determined to be a strong mother, more career-orientated and help other people. Take out but pack in, and make other people's lives better and anyone who is in pain, try and help as much as possible. For me, it has moulded me into the person I am today."

    Sadie added: "There'll always be that post-traumatic or something that can trigger the fact that you're on the edge. You're a slightly broken, damaged person and you'll never completely mend it. I take everything, my mental health seriously."

    Sadie Frost appears on the latest episode of ‘The Moments That Made Me’ with Roxie Nafousi, out Wednesday 15 September, 2021. ‘The Moments That Made Me’ is a Create Podcasts production.
