‘Birth of a Child is Birth of a Mother’. I feel that the statement rings so true. The journey has just begun with my nine months old baby boy. Life since then hasn’t been same. Being mother is the happiest moment of my life. I was laying barely conscious on the delivery bed, the nurse laid a baby covered in fluid and blood beside me. I still remember that moment when I saw him for the first time. So cute he was…with tiny hands, tiny feet. I thanked my doctor for helping me to have normal delivery. I completely changed that day from being young, carefree girl to mature, responsible mother.
The initial few days after delivery were difficult. Feeding the baby, bathing, oil massages, changing nappies, keeping wide awake during night. All happened at a jet speed. The most difficult part was to maintain a smile on your face even when you were tired, sleep deprived when visitors came to meet the new born. “How are you managing? Is he sleeping in the night? How long is your maternity break? What will you do after 3 months?” and many more questions. I felt like not even answering any of those.
I always wondered why people had so many questions, when you know that at this time new mother only needs rest so that she can take care of herself and her baby well. Dealing with all these I learned after I became mom. Despite of all these, the feeling I get when I hold him in my arms, when he smiles is inexpressible. I feel heavenly in more ways I could ever describe. Birth of my child had brought so many emotional and physical changes in me…!
No matter who loves your child, a mom will always have special place in child’s heart. My mother had always been my best friend. Never in my life have I felt how my mother have felt me around her all the time. Having my own child, I realised happiness, joy, satisfaction, love, nervousness everything. Becoming a mother has given me a whole new perspective to the term Unconditional Love…!
On this Mothers day I want to share my journey towards motherhood…
It all started with two pink lines on little stick. Those nine months passed in a blur between visiting gynecologist and all the pampering. Then came a D-day, after ten hours of rigorous pain I delivered a baby boy. Thanks to the medical science for discovering Epidural Anesthesia. I still remember that anesthesia specialist was convincing me when I compelled them to do C-section. Hats off to the doctor because nowadays doctors are making C-section just to grab money from people. But these doctors are really great.
I just want to mention their name here Dr.Geetha Belliappa (Gynec) and Dr. Shamith & Dr. Bhagirath (anesthesia specialists) from Rainbow Hospital, Banneraghatta road, Bangalore. Hey ladies in case if you are in need you can approach them.
Happy Mother’s Day to all beautiful Mom’s… 🙂
