When you look at pictures of to-be mammas flaunting their baby bump or candid images with their newborn babies, what comes to your mind? cute. How adorable!

Isn't motherhood such a beautiful experience?

While that's what everyone might think, isn't necessarily so for all women.

Have you heard of postpartum depression?

Have any of your friends told you how overwhelming it was to become a parent?

How motherhood made them cry, altered their moods, sleeping patterns, eating habits and overall physical and mental health? How it affected their career or relationships?

Recently, entrepreneur Upasana Konidela, movie star Ram Charan's wife, emphasised the importance of having a supportive partner when you become a mother.

'Ram Charan has been my strength throughout,' Upasana told Hyderabad Times (external link).

Speaking about her challenge with postpartum depression, Upasana revealed how Ram Charan supported her in the journey.

'My husband was my therapist and moved in with me to my parents' place.

I understand that it's not the same for all mothers, so it's vital for them to prioritise their well-being and seek professional assistance when needed.'

Many parents face such issues.
