Our Co-Founder, Preeti Chugh pens an emotional note about the relationship she shares her baby and how she traversed through the waters of parenthood.
“Whenever I recall the day and that moment when I came to know of my pregnancy, I am immediately reminded of the surge of excitement tinged with a lot of emotions, this has been an endearing memory for me. Suddenly there was an air of joy, celebrations and feelings of being over whelmed. As the to-be mother, I was of course living in my own world and in a very positive frame of mind. I was sure that my positivity will impact the fetus growing inside me, getting bigger and rounder by the day.
The journey of these nine months is quiet a package deal, of good days, low days, days filled with extreme apprehension and being totally engulfed with the reality that motherhood is actually a few trimesters away. This is also the phase when I was taking extra care of myself and all my family around me were equally concerned about my rest and my diet. It was during this time, a silent bond got signed between my baby and me. I was all set to protect my baby forever.
The first time I held my newborn baby felt magical and that little frail body wrapped up between my palms, showered me with a sense of responsibility and promises made for a lifetime between my baby and I.
Nothing but the best for him and a life full of love and all things good in between these fluctuating emotions, I also went through a brief separation anxiety, as my two days old baby was nursed into the NICU,due to his jaundice. This separation left me feeling all lifeless and cold.. all my labour pain paled into insignificance , this pain of my baby in the hospital emergency was painful.. at this point, I realized that all my trauma and pain was only because of the immediate bond my baby had built with me. This was pure love and a connection that is the most beautiful one , that of a mother and child. In 24 hours, I went through an experience that taught me the beauty and the pain of the deepest attachment of life. My son, it has been ten years now but even when I recollect and write this out, I get all emotional.”
