They laughed, played games, shared their experiences with each other and walked the ramp proudly displaying their baby bumps and paying an ode to womanhood, as they prepare for the most important transition in their lives.
Around 40 expecting mothers from across Panchkula took out a day out to celebrate and welcome their babies at a special Baby Shower event organized today by Paras Bliss Hospital, Panchkula.
The event was aimed at helping the would-be-mothers better cope with pregnancy and its associated difficulties, and provide them a sense of camaraderie with other women going through the same phase.
The event included a ramp walk with dedicated prizes for the Best Glowing Skin, The Most Sparkling Smile and the Best Attire. The celebration also saw the women enjoy in game of passing the parcel during which they performed multifarious activities.
“Motherhood is the most beautiful and the most natural thing to happen to women. When the babies arrive in their lives, mothers tend to become extremely busy in catering to the needs of their little ones. So, before this phase, we wanted to give these beautiful women a small fun-filled session of their own to make them feel good about themselves,” said Dr. Rishi Mangat, Unit Head, Paras Bliss Hospital, Panchkula.
The program also included a small session on Lamaze, a supporting course that helps provide women a variety of coping strategies to deal with the process of pregnancy and labor. It helps equip them to deal with the process of labor and respond to the pain with greater confidence and assurance.
The Lamaze experts explained to women that giving birth is the most natural thing that comes to women, and all they need to do is develop their mental strength to go through the process with greater ease.
“The program helped women establish contact with other women who are going through the same phase in life. It helped them share their experiences, voice their concerns and get much-needed assurances from their peers. Through this activity we want to underline that motherhood is a natural phenomenon and women must continue to lead active lives during pregnancies,” adds Dr. Rishi Mangat, Unit Head, Paras Bliss Hospital, Panchkula.
