Re­gard­ing the ar­ti­cle UAE’s nanny cul­ture a fac­tor in men­tal health

prob­lems, ex­pert says (Novem­ber 25), over­all holis­tic health and well­be­ing is the cul­mi­na­tion of fac­tors and no sin­gle fac­tor should be viewed in iso­la­tion.

For women and new moth­ers, im­proved ma­ter­nity op­tions, flex­i­ble work­ing hours and part-time op­por­tu­ni­ties are just some of the fac­tors that would help them and could be a start and a way to avoid the de­pen­dence on nan­nies in the early stages of a new­born’s life.
