Celebrating Mothers Everyday

We recently celebrated Mother’s Day but the truth is, a day, a year, a lifetime is not enough to thank and honour this very reason of our being. Mothers are an epitome of selfless love, and the world is blessed with extraordinary mothers who show us through their many ways what it is like to sacrifice with a smile and never expect anything in return.
Each mother has a story and every story is inspiring and worth sharing with the world. I have compiled a series of articles that document firsthand journeys of mothers in different situations and are a delight to read.

Are you a Power Mom?

That moment when the home pregnancy test comes positive and you are elated and anxious, both at the same time. The thought of having a baby puts you on cloud nine and from the moment you find out you are pregnant you can’t stop thinking, planning and gushing about it. I have been through this and know that most my generation moms have also experienced the same.

It is a long journey between conceiving and delivery, at every step one needs proper guidance and support to carry on with this most amazing phase of life. While your partner and family members are the best emotional support and confidants you can bank on, but one also needs to seek professional assistance from experts for this delicate stage of life. The very first person whom we connect with outside our kin, is a doctor, so it is only wise to choose one whom we can trust and rely on completely. Besides the doctor, the clinics, medical labs, the hospital are also to be chosen after much research and reccos by fellow moms. After all its only these decision, if taken wisely, will ensure a smooth pregnancy and joyous motherhood.
