An MCA graduate and an engineer by profession. Though I was ready to have a child, I did not plan for my pregnancy, and I got the chance to be a mother when I least expected!
Took the opportunity and went with the flow not realizing that I was in for a roller coaster ride with no idea of the ride or the path I was into. Took me a while to accept the changes I went through during pregnancy. Loved the care and the food around me, all happy faces around me, everyone waiting for the baby to arrive, even I was eagerly waiting…
And the day she was born, I was so happy that she was healthy because all I thought during my pregnancy was that I should get a healthy child. So all are happy, the baby is here and everyone wants to make phone calls and stuff. But, wait hold on, what about me??
No one told me how it is going to be with the baby around, I had no idea that my body will go so weak after delivery. I have been practicing yoga for around 10 years and I thought I would be able to cope up. All my assumptions went wrong, it was like a new chapter in my life with a new meaning for all the old thoughts. I just kept asking myself, how did my mother, grandmother took care of themselves, why is it that not many are aware of the importance of taking care of a New Mother in urban cities…
Amidst these thoughts, I got to hear from women about having mental issues post their delivery. More and more I got to hear, more and more I was trying to find a solution in my confused mind.
Then, one day I got a call from Neelufer, it was like a spiritual calling for me (ha ha). We spoke not more than 15 minutes but we knew we had to do this. Suddenly all my confusions cleared and I knew I was in the right place and joined Neelufer to continue our journey to reach as many women as possible and to let them know the care they deserve.
