After Anayka's birth, the young mommy, Smriti had raised a common issue amongst young mothers these days in an interview with The Times of India. She had talked about postpartum depression and had shared, "I have realised that even if you speak good on social media and educate people about pregnancy and mother, haters will still troll you. I felt that people did not discuss much about pregnancy, weight issues, breastfeeding and I feel these topics should come out openly in our society because there are so many myths and women struggle all their life to lose weight. There are so many times that this becomes a matter of depression for them. They stop stepping out because they are not looking a certain way or not fitting into their dress. Some women are scared to get pregnant. There is postpartum depression and it is a big thing and it is not spoken in India."
On August 5, 2020, Smriti Khanna had posted a picture with hubby, Gautam and daughter, Anayka. Flaunting their yellow ensembles, the whole family had looked like a bunch of sunflowers. In her caption, Smriti had written, "Having a nurturing and cognizant partner always standing by your side is such manna from heaven, especially when you enter motherhood and realize how challenging it can be when it comes to managing breastfeeding as a part & parcel of daily life routine. A very important thing that I and Gautam are learning during parenthood is how to be resilient and instrumental for each other!"
