The President’s eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, had an interview with talk show host Doctor Oz. Ivanka spoke about the postpartum depression she struggled with after delivering each of her three cute children.
Postpartum depression is common in many women, and Ivanka Trump is one of them. She suffered from “some level” of this condition, and decided to speak about her experience.
“It was very – it was a very challenging, emotional time for me because I felt like I was not living up to my potential as a parent or as an entrepreneur and an executive. And I had had such easy pregnancies, that in some way the juxtaposition hit me even harder,” Ivanka Trump said.

Many thought that Ivanka won’t share details about her experience, but the President’s daughter thought it was a good idea. According to her, this problem is incredibly important, and shouldn’t be ignored.
Ivanka Trump said that she is a very hard-charging person, ambitious, passionate and driven. But, that couldn’t change the fact that postpartum depression affects “parents all over the country.”
She also discussed over her new position at the White House. Let’s not forget that Ivanka Trump is one of the closest advisers to her father. It’s hard to have such responsibility if your father is the president of the country.
“I have my views and I share them candidly. And as a daughter I have the latitude to do that. But I also respect the process that my father is now president. And the American people elected him based on his agenda. And my job isn’t to undermine that agenda,” Ivanka said.
This brilliant woman talked about her job, noting that she tends to inform President Trump about her disagreement with his decisions. She is always doing it quietly. Although Ivanka Trump tries to stay out of politics, her new role doesn’t allow her to do so.
