- My Story -
I was blessed to have a healthy pregnancy and a positive child-birthing experience. But I was very disappointed to see harmful myths and fallacies clouding the minds of pregnant and new Moms around me. The commercialization of pregnancy and baby products added to the saga. I spent a significant amount of time researching and seeking truthful, logical and scientific principles that helped me during pregnancy and early parenting. It also inspired me to join the Childbirth and Postpartum Professional Association (CAPPA) to become a Certified Childbirth Educator.
I believed in providing traditional Indian massage to my own baby and was thrilled to find out that massage had many medically proven benefits to it. The multiple physical and emotional benefits to both Mom & baby were being recognized and celebrated by doctors worldwide. This encouraged me to get certified as an Infant Massage Instructor with the International Association of Infant massage (IAIM)
I hope to continue working in close association with families and health care providers to encourage natural, comfortable and healthy pregnancy, birthing and parenting experiences.
