Sarah Michelle Gellar took a stand against the new GOP health care bill by revealing her own personal struggle with postpartum depression.

The "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" star addressed her 1.5 Instagram million fans on Tuesday by sharing a photo of her with daughter Charlotte, whom she shares with husband Freddie Prinze Jr.

"Having kids is wonderful, and life changing, and rarely what you're prepared for," she captioned a photo. "I love my children more than anything in the world. But like a lot of women, I too struggled with postpartum depression after my first baby was born."

"I got help, and made it through, and every day since has been the best gift I could ever have asked for," she continued. "To those of you going through this, know that you're not alone and that it really does get better. And if you believe that postpartum depression should be covered by healthcare, please take a moment and go to callmecongress.com today, find your rep's numbers and let them know."

While CallMeCongress.com is not an actual website, she likely meant CallMyCongress.com, which directs users to the representatives for their district.

She added the hashtag #NotAPreExistingCondition, a clear reference to the American Health Care Act allowing insurers the ability to charge higher premiums for pre-existing conditions.

Gellar's post comes after Jimmy Kimmel made a passionate plea regarding health care after his son's open heart surgery last week.
