She also mentioned how the pregnancy affected her mental and physical health. She wrote:
"To be honest, it wasn't a pleasant journey for me considering everything I went through with my relationship + The pregnancy took a toll on me mentally and physically. I absolutely love Abby but I still have a lot to heal from."
In another story, she explained her painful motherhood journey and also revealed her current emotions. She mentioned, "Not beautiful as such. I'm sure a lot of mums would agree with me. The initial months are pure survival and learning for mum and baby. It's extremely difficult." In addition, she also asked the other new moms to not get stressed about the same feeling and stated:
"It's okay to dislike parenting, it's okay to dislike your new job, it's okay to feel like you're not ready..."
Further, another netizen asked her how she is healing from the events which happened in 2022. To this, Malvika mentioned that even though a lot happened to her in 2022, she didn't get the time to heal completely. However, right now, her daughter is her priority. In Malvika's words:
"Not dealt yet. A lot has happened and I haven't had the time to process any of it fully. Like I said, I have a lot of healing to do. Right now, Abby is my priority. Tbh, I don't even have time to take a shower peacefully. It's a lot."
