Kendra Wilkinson told PEOPLE Saturday at Las Vegas’s Wet Republic pool party that she finally feels like she is herself again after suffering from Post-Partum Depression following the birth of her son, reports PEOPLE
 
“[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,” Wilkinson said.
 
“Now that I have my body back and I feel good again, I have the perfect amount of balance. It’s all about finding the balance.”
 
Kendra admits that finding that balance was a struggle in the beginning.
“It got pretty bad, [but] not to the point where I would harm my family. I was a great mom and did what I needed to, but I was definitely very depressed,” she said. “[Motherhood is] a big change in life and it happened overnight.”
 
Wilkinson hopes that by being open with her postpartum depression, other women will feel able to openly address similar struggles. “It needs to be talked about,” she said.
