Book Description

About the Book
Bringing a new life into this world is an incredible feeling. The joy of becoming parents cannot be adequately described in words. However, it is of vital importance to plan well before embarking on the journey of parenthood. The process from the moment of conception to the birth of the baby should be holistic and harmonious. Ayurved and traditional Indian wisdom prescribe several therapies for a smooth pregnancy and a happy, healthy baby.

This comprehensive book begins with the theory of birth, and includes insights into conception, pregnancy-related health issues, Yoga, Mudra Therapy, Music Therapy, post-delivery issues for mother and child, and newborn care. It also contains useful and effective home remedies for health issues, as well as easy recipes for nutritious pregnancy foods.

Mindful Conception and Gratifying Parenthood provides traditional knowledge that used to be passed down through grandmothers and older women in the household. In the age of nuclear families, this book is an invaluable resource for couples planning a baby.

A girl blossoms into a woman when she steps into motherhood, which is one of the most gratifying experiences in a woman's life. Giving birth to a baby is not just a physical phenomenon-it is a divine feeling experienced by both parents. In my career, I have counselled many teenagers, married couples-both and young and old, and have been keenly observing the changes that have been occurring in our ways of living and in society over the years.

The joint family system has all but crumbled and now most youngsters do not live with their parents for various reasons. Newly married couples have their own homes and even when they are keen to expand their family and raise a child, their career becomes a top priority. Modern life is stressful and a lot of couples experience difficulty in conceiving a baby. Moreover, when young couples plan their baby there is not much guidance available to them. This book is an attempt at sharing this knowledge by covering different aspects and perspectives about motherhood and parenthood.
