#SleeplessMoms – A Call to Action

Bhubaneswar: In the gentle embrace of dawn, while the world is still snuggled up peacefully, there exists a silent symphony of sacrifice and resilience – the story of our #SleeplessMoms. While motherhood is celebrated with great fervor in our culture, we often take their efforts for granted and overlook their comfort. It is essential to shine a light on the challenges that many mothers face, and perhaps see the world through their tired eyes. Only then we will understand what it takes to bring comfort to others.

No. 1: The Sleep Deficit Dilemma

According to a recent survey conducted by the Indian Sleep Disorders Association, it was revealed that mothers across India are grappling with a significant sleep deficit. On average, Indian mothers get 1-2 hours less sleep per night compared to their non-parent counterparts. This staggering statistic sheds light on the reality of sleep deprivation in our society and its impact on maternal well-being.

No. 2: The Cognitive Cost of Sleep Deprivation

Research from the prestigious All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) underscores the cognitive toll that sleep deprivation takes on mothers. A startling revelation from the study indicates that sleep-deprived mothers experience a 20% decrease in cognitive function. Moreover, stress levels among sleep-deprived mothers surge by 25%, adding another layer to the multifaceted challenges they face.

No. 3: The Ripple Effect: Mood Swings and Irritability

Studies published in the Indian Journal of Psychiatry highlights that sleep-deprived mothers in India are reported to be 2.5 times more likely to experience mood swings and irritability, amplifying the already demanding nature of motherhood.

No. 4: The Looming Threat: Postpartum Depression

The Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) conducted a comprehensive study revealing a concerning trend – mothers who experience sleep deprivation are at a 30% increased risk of postpartum depression. This sobering statistic underscores the urgent need for awareness and support for sleep-deprived mothers across our nation.

As we navigate the intricacies of modern life, let us prioritize the well-being of mothers, ensuring they receive the comfort and support they deserve. Not just on Mother’s Day but every day.
