In a YouTube video, Smriti revealed that it was a stressful time as her mother's cancer treatment was going on, and just a few days before her passing away, she had a miscarriage. The actress called the experience scary. However, it was the second miscarriage that left her super scared. It was a chemical pregnancy and she thought that she should opt for IVF, which was again a mistake because of the excruciating pain of needles, the whole process, and she dropped the plan.

Smriti further stated that when she lost her hope, she conceived naturally. However, during the beginning of her first trimester, she was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition, which could harm the baby. The doctor's had to save her child as her condition was not curable. However, in the midst of it, she had to attend a wedding, and just 3-4 days before she started bleeding. Smriti was quoted as saying:

"I had to attend a wedding and 3-4 din pehle I started bleeding. I was so scared and rushed to the hospital, and thought I had miscarried again. When doctors checked, everything was fine and there was somehow bleeding. But you have to be on complete bed rest."

Smriti was asked to be on complete bed rest and to avoid showers as well. The actress stated she started feeling emotionally drained and depressed. She couldn't play with her daughter, Anayka. After 3-4 days, she decided to attend the wedding, and it helped her as her environment changed. Smriti further stated that it hadn't been a smooth pregnancy and had gone through a lot.
