(DNAINFO) Jeff Mays | November 17, 2015 — When she became pregnant with her first child, Martha Duff, 35, didn’t know it came with the expectation that she would be happy all the time.
“People would ask me how I was doing and get upset even when I said ‘so-so,” Duff said Tuesday while holding her 6-month old daughter Margot. “Everyone kept telling me, ‘you should be happy, you’re having a baby’.”
But Duff, who lives in the East Village, was experiencing a hormonal imbalance due to her pregnancy that was causing her to suffer from depression. Her doctor referred her to Bellevue Hospital where she has seen a psychiatrist for the last year.
