Any interruption in the normal routine provides an opportunity to prayerfully consider our lives with greater scrutiny. This has been a life pattern that mother and children know well. Out of sheer necessity, daddy’s life needs to be in a perpetual state of recalibration around what matters most, and to break the stereotype Sohaib Malik was captured in action, babysitting little Mirza Malik!
Refreshingly open to babysitting, the only message through this picture we get is babysitting is not confined to women! It’s a sportsmen spirit to accept duties and to break the norms fabricated to pressurize women. We live in a society where none of us talks about postpartum depression which 90% of women go through after birth. And 80% of women need their husband’s support to recover.
Postpartum depression (PPD) is a complex mix of physical, emotional, and behavioural changes that happen in a woman after giving birth. According to the DSM-5, a manual used to diagnose mental disorders, PPD is a form of major depression that has its onset within four weeks after delivery. The diagnosis of postpartum depression is based not only on the length of time between delivery and onset but also on the severity of the depression. Postpartum depression is linked to chemical, social, and psychological changes associated with having a baby. And facing PPD it is impossible for a woman to cope without support. PPD is a great subject and we can’t cover everything in this blog, the subject has various strings attached to it and we need to dig a little more before penning it further.
However, In a discussion with First time mothers I got to know that the majority of the fathers aren’t aware of the term postpartum depression, and the need at this point is to create awareness, though it’s just an example that Malik who is committed to his work life choose to take the responsibility and represented the millennial fatherhood!
