The Wider Image: New mothers suffer nerves, guilt as maternity leave ends
Jenny Shrestha, 34, who works as a supervisor at Prime Commercial Bank LTD, holds her three-months-old son Aayan Shrestha as she poses for a photograph along with her husband Ashish Shrestha, 35, and elder son Aayush Shrestha, 7, in the week Jenny went back to work, in Kathmandu, Nepal, February 25, 2019. Jenny was on a maternity leave for two months and Ashish for ten days. The statutory maternity leave in Nepal is 98 days. "I fell very sad because I'm very attached to my child and it's very hard to leave him", Jenny said. "At least six months would be the fair amount of maternity leave." She said her mother and sister will help take care of her baby. REUTERS/Navesh Chitrakar SEARCH "MOTHERS GLOBAL" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
