“[After I had a baby,] I felt like I had to be a different person. I had to be conservative and wear turtlenecks and be someone that I wasn’t,” she told PEOPLE Saturday pool at Las Vegas’s Wet Republic.

“Now that I am back to my body and I felt well again, I have the perfect amount of balance. It’s all about finding balance.”

“It is bad enough, [but] there is no place where I hurt my family. I was a great mom and doing what I needed, but I’m definitely very depressed,” he says. “[Motherhood] is a big change in life, and it happened overnight.”

For Wilkinson, 26, she believes that the problem began when all her attention turned to his son, so little time for yourself. And when she felt the public pressure to reconsider after the body of the child, the reality star admits he became too hot to handle.

“At that time I did what I could for the child, but I lost myself and it was really frustrating,” she shares. “Being in the spotlight, a lot of pressure to weight loss, [especially] the world of Playboy.”

Noting that “many women suffer from PPD,” Wilkinson hopes that sharing her story offers a support system for others facing the same struggles. “We need to talk,” he explains.
