In a society where motherhood and sacrifice are often seen as synonyms, more often than not, moms are not taking care of themselves and according to a survey, moms put their health and wellbeing at the end of the list because they juggle many roles such as caregiver, partner, homemaker, employee, daughter-in-law and multiple others. Each of these roles is governed by attitudes, beliefs, and perspectives and most of them have a set of many unrealistic expectations and demands, which often prove to be highly taxing on one's physical and mental health.
Due to the increased stress, many mothers are currently suffering from several psychological problems such as anxiety, panic attacks, difficulty breathing, sudden onset of palpitations, and an increasing sense of helplessness. Even though they continue to suffer from mental illness, most of them do not come forward and often tend to hide their problems due to several stigmas. The past year and a half has been tough on mothers is an understatement, with many juggling their own careers while also taking care of their households. This has taken a toll on their mental well-being.
