â€œBaby on Boardâ€ is the story of a motherâ€™s journey right from the thought of entering the phase of â€˜motherhoodâ€™ to actually holding the baby in her arms. Isnâ€™t it surreal? It surely is. Sonia shared her journey of being a mother from starting to end, with all minute details and thrashing all the irrelevant myths related to pregnancy. This book presents the unaltered feelings of a mother, her fear and anxieties, and of course the hidden excitement and happiness behind all these chaotic feelings.
Have you heard the word â€˜Takophobiaâ€™ before? I would really like to thank Sonia for introducing all of us with this particular term which means â€“ fear of childbirth. We have seen all the movies and web series illustrating pregnancy as oh so happy and cheerful phase of a womanâ€™s life. It is of course, but apart from that, there are hell lot of mental and physical changes that are seriously not easy for a woman to undergo. That too when almost half of the mothers or mother-to-be are not even aware of whatâ€™s good and whatâ€™s bad for them or their baby. Miscarriages an abnormality in a child can be because of some genetic reason or any medical complications. But, one major reason can be the lack of awareness regarding dos and donâ€™ts of pregnancy.
We use to believe so many irrelevant myths related to pregnancy because most of the time they are conveyed to us by our parents or dear ones. But thatâ€™s not the fact. One of the most common myths is that pregnant women should take rest and should not work. In reality, it is suggested by top doctors that a woman can do her regular jobs with all ease and that would further be helpful in keeping the mother and the baby healthy. Of course, a lot of precaution is needed.
The second such myth is that delivery should be normal. Our society actually marks those women weak or timid who willingly choose to go for C-sec. Donâ€™t you think itâ€™s an individualâ€™s right to decide what suits them and what difference does it make in the happiness of having a baby by C-sec or normal delivery? Ultimately the aim is to have a healthy and happy Baby. But this is the reality.
Soniaâ€™s book â€˜Baby on Boardâ€™ is a must-read for every mother-to-be because of the personal instinct that this book provides. Sonia wrote this book in a manner that youâ€™ll feel you are talking to your best friend and she is definitely giving you a bit of well-researched advice. She shared all her fears, anxiety, and struggles that she had throughout her pregnancy. It will calm and at the same time impart knowledge to all the moms-to-be.
The unique and best part about â€˜Baby on Boardâ€™ is that the author has not neglected the father-to-be as our society does always. This book can be read by Men as well to know how they can contribute and make this whole pregnancy process a better experience for their wives. There is a reason why it is normally said that a baby further strengthens the bond of a married couple. Go grab this book to know the answer.
You can gift this book to any couple who are expecting or planning to conceive. Trust me theyâ€™ll thank you for the rest of their lives.
