It is quite inspiring how many women are coming forward to shatter the stereotypes attached to motherhood. Rather than letting society decide, they are taking the control of their motherhood journey. Recently Anita Hassanandani shared how she started her motherhood journey at age of 39 and Mona Singh opened up about freezing her eggs so that it gives her the flexibility to embark on the journey when she is ready!
Now actor-couple Kishwer Merchant, and Suyyash Rai have come forward to share their parenthood journey.
Posting a picture of her baby bump with hubby Suyyash alongside a pair of baby shoes, the mother-to-be announced that they’re expecting the arrival of their kid by August 2021, reported DNA.
“You can now stop asking ‘when are you guys gonna have a baby’. Coming Soon. #august2021 #sukishkababy,” Kishwer captioned the post.

Kishwer has conceived her first child naturally at the age of 40. It is quite inspiring that Kishwer has successfully managed to break the societal stereotype attached to the timing of motherhood.
Sharing how age is not a problem anymore, Kishwer reportedly said,
“I have conceived naturally at 40 and I don’t think that age is a major problem in today’s era in terms of conceiving.”
She further added:
“Nobody can say that in my case I mean, as I said I conceived naturally at 40 and I think it’s fantastic. I believe 40 is the new 30. There’s nothing to worry about is what I really want to tell women. You can get married at 35, 36 or whenever like I did and have your babies too whenever you feel like.”
Our society keeps telling women to have kids as soon as possible otherwise we will run out of time. Many times, even when a woman doesn’t feel ready to be a mom, she succumbs to the societal pressure because it is better to have it now than never.
Though we completely understand that there is an age when our body might be in a better state than any other time to handle the physical stress of motherhood, what we forget is that motherhood isn’t just about physical fitness. It is also about mental readiness as well as financial conditions. This ensures motherhood is healthy, happy, and stress-free for women.
At IFORHER we are in awe of these new-age moms, who are shattering misconceptions about motherhood and paving their own path to living life on their own terms.
