As a new mum I faced one issue and I would like to talk about it--Postpartum depression is for real. I had it for 6 weeks. I did not fall in love with my baby the moment I saw him. I didn’t. It took me a while to adjust to this new change and it suddenly dawned upon me that my independence is gone, also because I had a baby after 12 years of marriage. I would think that I didn’t sign up for this.

Your hormones make you have these weird conversations with yourself and I was depressed and it lasted for about 6 weeks. I have no qualms in saying that I went through postnatal depression. You need the support of your family around you who know that such a thing exists.

Shveta Salve, the dusky beauty of small screen tied the knot with her boyfriend, Hemant Sethi in 2012 and welcomed her first child, a daughter named Arya in 2016. It was during the time of her pregnancy, specifically, in her third trimester that Shveta went through prenatal depression.

Talking about her insecurities and anxiety during this time, Shveta said:

“Aches and pains, carpal tunnel all happened, my lovely pregnancy glow was dimming and sometimes depression would sink in. Am I ever going to be myself again? Will my body never bounce back? Is my life going to change so drastically? Would I have to make new friends and my social life will end? Will I ever be able to wear a bikini and go to the beach??”

Chahatt said that Farhan once tried to procure a bank loan using her name. 'He even sold my car and jewellery for money,' she alleged, adding, 'My second pregnancy was difficult; the baby’s weight was not normal, as I was almost starving. There was hardly any money at home and I had to be extremely selective about buying even food items. I have even sold my clothes online to survive that phase. It was not easy for me to get out of the house. I somehow sneaked out, taking some essentials with me,' she claimed.

From taking care of her daughter to spend time with her, she loves to be a part of her development in every small way. 'My journey as a mother has been really beautiful, however, I too went through post-partum depression in the first year. Women do undergo baby blues, but they seldom bring it to notice. I'm glad I addressed the issue, since it helped me a lot. The first year of motherhood was very tough; and especially for those of us in nuclear families, this issue is more grave, since the responsibility cannot be shared,' she says.

Avantika Mohan, a popular blogger, is the wife of India’s bestselling author, Durjoy Datta. The couple tied the knot in 2016 and welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Rayna in 2017. She recently opened up about her battle against prenatal depression. The newbie mommy went through depression, at the time when she conceived her baby.

Talking about the same, Avantika posted on her Instagram handle, saying:
“My mother thought it very absurd that I was behaving like this; she kept telling me I should feel blessed, that it was wrong for me to feel this way. And I couldn't explain what I felt like. There was the happiness of course, but there was an overwhelming sadness that loomed over me like a never-ending dark cloud. I didn't take any treatment (I should have but I guess I was too confused and a bit ashamed) but I got better over time. People can be sad in very happy situations as well. This is what depression is. Not everything has to be wrong in your life to suffer from depression. Sometimes it's inexplicable.”
