Usually after childbirth, a mother has to learn to care for her child, nourish herself back to good health and recover from childbirth. The time post childbirth is really important as it gives the family time to adjust to a new being in their life and also create a special bond. But these days this time is not considered very important as the burden from the real world caves in and people are in a hurry to get back to their jobs and daily routine. This may lead to the development of a depression called postpartum depression which is very common among parents after childbirth.
We often see how people are motivated and supported by their loved ones to pursue their goals. Just a little push in the right direction is all that everyone needs at some point in their lives. This can help us live a better life and make better decisions.
