Women were mean, and I am not joking. I would look in the mirror and hate myself. And I wish I had somebody to tell me it’s okay, it’s fine.”
On a YouTube chat show, Esha had shared her experience with baby blues after her second child, Miraya’s birth. She said, “After my second delivery, I didn’t know what it was.

I sat quietly and very dull, low. And I have given birth to a beautiful baby girl again and it’s a very happy moment in my life and I didn’t know what’s going on.”
