It takes two to make a child and we need to share the load and responsibility: Kareena Kapoor

the UNICEF Goodwill Advocate spoke at a panel discussion on ways to eliminate preventable neonatal deaths and stressed that a mother and father need to work equally hard towards the upbringing of their child.

"I’ve been lucky [and] give utmost credit to Saif [Ali Khan]. The first thing after childbirth that you want to do is put the child on the mother’s breast. After childbirth I was tired, but that was on my mind. With my eyes half shut, I asked Saif to give Taimur that kangaroo love," she said.

"When the mother is recuperating from childbirth, the father must step in. A shout out to those fathers whose support is important for a newborn’s health."

Saif and Kareena take turns with Taimur so that both can manage their careers simultaneously. "I chose to celebrate Mother’s Day on this stage with other eminent people because my son (Taimur) is celebrating Father’s Day with his father. It’s because of this support that I’m here today."
