The doting young mommy, Smriti Khanna had opened up about postpartum depression in an interview with The Times of India. To begin with, Smriti had emphasised on the importance of educating a woman on breastfeeding, pregnancy and postpartum depression, as the latter is a big deal, yet not much spoken about in India. Smriti had said, “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."

She had further added, "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." She had spoken about the kind of encouragement and support she had received from her fans, not to mention how she doesn't care about trolls. She had said, "There are so many girls and mothers who have messaged me saying thank you for making pregnancy look so smooth and nice. They tell me they were scared to get pregnant thinking that their body would look a certain way or they will completely go on bed rest and now they feel that pregnancy can be a fun ride too. I feel there will be 10 percent people who will have problems with everything but there will be 90 percent people who were giving blessings to me and my kind which made me feel great."
