The reason why I am writing this post is because of a comment by one of the readers Nidhi. She wrote this –

my family is pressurising me and i do not know what is right ?
i love kids..may be am just scared of the responsibilities..but i want to know what good things happen after you become a mother (so that i can convince myself
First of all, any question or doubt you might have you can always speak of it so feel free to comment And, yes, thank you for putting up such a major issue. In fact, one of my colleagues is also going through the same phase.
She has been married for three years and now, the pressure from both sides of her family is impossible for hear to bear, in fact so much that she thinks it better to get a baby and relieved of the burden. But, the real wish was known when she suddenly started having her periods after a long spell and she shared with me how relieved she felt after that. Clearly, she is not mentally ready for it.
