Motherhood is powerful and blissful. From the very first tickling sensation till that ecstatic welcome-cry moment, the journey of a mommy-to-be turning into a doting mother is beyond expression. Giving birth to a new life and a bundle of dubious emotions is an accomplishment worth applauds.
This Mother’s Day, we raise a toast to the 9-month long journey. It surely deserves celebration, adventure, excitement and its whole share of happiness. On the occasion, we had a tête-à-tête with moms from the real world who had a gala time during their pregnancy period. Do some eyeballing and get inspired to keep your spirits high if you too have stepped into the motherly shoe.
Let’s do some Tango
“Pregnancy and dance – people find these two things completely unmatched. Just in case you want to know, tango is one of the few dance movements that can be practiced and enjoyed during pregnancy with all the safety. It also helped me increase flexibility in the body. And what could be a better feeling than dancing together with my husband and unborn child?”
– Kashish Malhotra, Lucknow, Mother of a 5-year-old
We Went Camping, Hiking With Trekking
“Essentially, moving out on the trails, breathing fast and deep and stretching my legs were the most natural and healthy things that I could do as my baby grew in my belly.”
– Mamta Vohra, Amritsar, Mother of a 4-year-old
Clubbing, exercising hanging around with other mom-to-be friends
“I found making friends with women who were not pregnant wasn’t making me happy. So, I reached out to some five ladies who were expecting near my society through social channels and connected with them. We eventually hung around and had a lot of fun during those crucial moments of my life. We used to go for yoga sessions, picnics, movies, walks on every frequent interval and the time passed away happily. ”
– Minni Singh, Chandigarh, Mother of a 9-year-old and 4-year-old

“Vacationing during this phase can be the best way to celebrate the motherhood phase. We explored three destinations during the safe period and every time it refreshed me with double energies. The picturesque scenes amidst new cultures gave a relaxed feeling breaking the monotony.”
