The Joy of Pregnancy

By Ms. Swati Thoda

Pregnancy is a time of great excitement and anticipation and one needs to be well-informed to have the safest and most enjoyable experience during this time.

The joy of pregnancy begins with the two ticks on Pregna News/I-Can (positive pregnancy test). And the joy continues in feeling the baby grow and move, with probably additional opportunities to see the baby on ultrasound and hear its heartbeat. All this leading up to the final joy of pregnancy – holding the baby in the arms for the first time.

The new attitude of expectant moms is one of cheerful anticipation, optimism, and pride in their changing bodies. The Joy in Pregnancy is all about reflecting this positive spirit by emphasizing what’s normal, fun, and even funny about pregnancy. Learning about the miracle called birth helps mothers- and fathers-to-be to stay confident throughout pregnancy.

Once the following details are well thought out, one is ready to receive the baby with much more confidence.  The month-by-month format provides the essential information that expectant parents crave: how the baby is developing, how the mother’s body is changing, how to prepare for birth and baby, and the pros and cons of various pregnancy-related choices and issues. Expectant parents can actually prepare to take an active role in ensuring a healthy, happy, and truly joyful pregnancy.

How can we forget that the joy also comes from sharing and caring! Planning the post pregnancy/post delivery period is as important. How will you handle the newborn, will someone from family or friends be there to help out, are your home chores gonna be managed without worry, how well prepared is the father-to-be, are your finances in place, is your home ready to receive your baby – several of these timely preparations can take away the rush and allow the new parents-to-be to share more quality time with each other. This only allows them to enjoy the pregnancy days and make them memorable. 

The joy that the arrival of your little one brings is far beyond what words can explain. Though it may be a mammoth task to raise a child, capturing every moment is a chance to relive these joyful moments ever and ever in life ahead. 

Wishing one and all who can be a part on this exciting journey of pregnancy with us – a wishful learning, a happy disposition, a joyful pregnancy time and a loving baby birth. 

May you all become fantastic parents for the new generation to come.
