Dr. Anshika Lekhi - Gynecologist and IVF Specialist, Gurgaon
Being a mother is the toughest job on earth, yet the most amazing experience. I am a mother to two naughty girls, who embark on me with something new every day. It’s my proud privilege as an IVF specialist that I am able to bring this same experience of motherhood to the lives of others too. I feel thankful to God with every pregnancy that I give that I become the path to bring the missing ingredient of motherhood or parenthood into their lives. “Every woman has the right to become a mother, and she deserves that”. Motherhood is a wonderful chapter of womanhood. People say mothers are weak. We are not. It’s our biggest strength. Cherish the beauty of motherhood on this Mother’s Day. Happy Mother’s Day!
Dr. Pooja Chaudhry Thukral, Associate Director - Cloud Nine Hospital (Obs & Gynae), Faridabad, MBBS (Gold Medalist), MD, DNB, MRCOG
As we celebrate Mother’s Day this year I would like to thank God for giving me this opportunity to bring life to this world. Being a second-generation Gynecologist my mom being one too was a boon for me. There is nothing else that I ever would want to do in this life as a professional.
Advice for those planning to conceive or those who are pregnant is 'Eat Pray & Love'
Eat - healthy and nourishing food. It's your body and your baby is your responsibility.
Pray- Seek divine intervention to bless you and your family with a healthy offspring. Let's give up on Ladka hai ya Ladki!
Love- Be in love with the life inside you and those around you. Life is too short to complaint.
Dr Pallavi Vasal, Director – Obstetrics & Gynecology, W Pratisksha Hospital, Gurgaon, MBBS, DGO (Gold Medalist), MRCOG (London), FMAS
When a woman is planning her pregnancy, she has a lot of responsibilities on her shoulders for the health and well-being of herself and her child. An expectant mother is recommended to follow certain rules. These include– Giving up of smoking, alcohol & substance abuse.
Taking necessary Health Supplements like Folic acid.
Optimization of pre-existing health issues like Obesity, High blood pressure, thyroid disorders, anemia & diabetes.
Ensure timely vaccination of covid, flu, rubella, chicken pox & hepatitis before conceiving.
So, it is advised to meet with a gynecologist pre-conceptionally (even before conceiving). A healthy mind lives in a healthy body, and a healthy baby grows inside a healthy mother.
Dr. Nitisha Lath -MBBS, MS (Obs Gynae), FRM, Gynecologist and IVF Specialist, Jaipur
Happy Mother’s Day to all the lovely ladies out there! You all are the most precious and powerful beings with the ability to create and nurture the human race forward.
"Motherhood is a choice and every woman has the right to choose."
Every woman has a desire to become a mother one day, but not all are lucky enough to conceive naturally as and when they want to. Do not get disheartened or lose hope, as there is a ray of sunshine at the end of the tunnel. With the emerging advances in the field of medicine and with patience, all such infertile women can fulfil their dreams.
So I hope that God gives every woman the second life of being a mother. I wish you all days full of giggles and smiles. Be strong, resilient, empathetic and a nurturer.
