Alia Bhatt once discussed her weekly therapy sessions following the birth of her daughter, Raha, emphasizing her dedication to maintaining her mental health.

During a 2023 interview with Vogue India, the 31-year-old actress shared insights into her experience with motherhood.

The 2 States actress shared that since welcoming her daughter, she has been attending therapy sessions to navigate the challenges of new motherhood.

Alia also recognized the importance of addressing the healthy amount of mom guilt that many new mothers experience.

She shared, “I’m always wondering what people are thinking. Do they actually think I’m managing well, or are they only saying it to placate me. Even if there isn’t judgment, you feel very critical of yourself."

"But I work hard on my mental health. I go to therapy every week where I voice these fears. And it helps me understand that this is not something that I will be able to figure out on day one or five or even ten."

Reflecting on the time she began to take therapy sessions, the Highway star said, “When I started therapy, I did it just as a hygiene thing. To take care of my body, I go to the gym; I need to take care of my mind as well."

"It’s something I started amidst the lockdown when everybody was going through a hard time, and I thought that maybe this would be a good time to start."

"I started as a generic thing, but what I discovered through those sessions is that I have so many issues when it comes to. I always knew I was anal when it comes to my weight because I’m facing the camera,” Alia added.
