Journey from a woman to a mom is super thrilling and full of moments. You can’t imagine what kind of life will be after you are blessed with your first baby. Moments, bonding, love, emotions and learnings of being a parent is super awesome and full of surprises.
Your first baby gives you pride and feelings of being a mom and dad. Being a parent, being a mom is like riding on roller coaster ride in which you just scream either on low or on top. Motherhood changes the emotional and mental thought process of your’s and your world moves around your baby. You just want everything perfect for your baby and don’t want to compromise on the sake of your baby’s comfort and happiness.
Before baby, you are in dilemma what you really need but after baby you know every time what your baby needs. Before your baby, you want everything according to you and after your baby, you want everything according to your baby. Your life no longer revolves around you, it only revolves around your baby and baby’s comfort.
Selfishness turns into selflessness.
This is the journey of a woman being a mom. This is the journey of mine being a mom of three year old son. During “Child birth Classes”, our facilitator said one beautiful line. “During labor you will be in pain, you will be messed up with contractions but think about Gift which you are going to receive in return of this pain. Then you will be ready to bear that pain again n again in life because your return gift is so beautiful and precious.“ Truly this one sentence means a lot, I believed in it and prepared myself to tolerate the contractions without getting panic.
First touch, first hold of your baby is priceless, you are on cloud nine to hold your baby first time in your arms . You start falling in love with your baby in womb without seeing her. You just talk to her through baby-bump, baby in womb is able to feel the emotions of mother and identify the voices of mom & dad.
After giving birth to your baby, your body will no longer the same like before. You have stretch marks, belly fat. But you still love yourself as mother. You are too busy with your bundle of joy that you don’t have time to think about yourself anymore.
You love to read articles or posts on motherhood and baby care than Bollywood or Fashion news. Fashion turns into baby clothing and varieties. Now shopping mean to go out to shop for baby stuff only. You want to make new friends who are new or experienced moms with whom you can share your troubles and issues.
Our life is filled with happiness, love, emotions and affection after birth of my son. He is three years old now. After his birth, we are feeling contempt and more responsible. Now me and my husband always talk, how dull and incomplete our life was without you, my son. You come into our life like a blessing thats why we gave you name Ayaan, Gift of God”. After your birth, we became more sensible parents. We have done number of experiments with
parenting, with way we handled him.
Now we are more social than ever. Before becoming parents, we were too much busy in our own life. But after Ayaan, we want to let him know about relationship and its values. He also loves to spend time with friends and relatives. Sometimes, we are not in mood to go at someone’s place but Ayaan insist to take him at other’s place. Because of him, we come close to few of our relations.
A woman life turns into 360 degree. But you still loves the change which you have in life. You want best care for your little one. I have written few lines for my boy on his first birthday, which I am sharing here with you all.
From turning zero to one
From cute baby bump to little man in my lap
From hiccups to his first touch
From counting days to counting months
Life has changed completely after your arrival

Love is second name of yours. May you always be the reason of someone’s happiness.
