In this maternity book, Vidhi Beri has shared the 9 crucial steps that can champion the process from pregnancy to toddler weaning. The book begins with the art and science of conception or Garbha Sanskar and works its way through Prenatal Nutrition for the mind and body of the mother and fetus. Movement Curation and the Prakriti of a new parent is the natural next step to consider – leading into Mindfulness Practices for mothers to make their womb a vibrant spiritual sanctum. A transition from prenatal to postnatal involves the birth of a child, and some factual awareness to avoid the usual Hysteria around Delivery. Managing the Mother Baby Separation at hospital, wrapping your head around the seemingly never-ending phenomena of Lactation and Breastfeeding to the famous Indian Postnatal Dietary paraphernalia – these are some of the areas that have been simplified in this book. As she was working on the book, Vidhi realized the importance of the unspoken subject of Intimacy and how the Role of the Partner are truly revealing of how parenthood can unfold for each one of us. Finally, the book imparts knowledge about how you can manage yours as well as your baby’s emotions, expectations, and really differentiate between facts and fiction. Babies are divine offerings from humans to this Universe. They change the vibrational dynamic of family relationships. Baby care and vibrational healing therapies are a game changer for the modern family. Infant care is truly put to test when parents transition from breast or bottle to solid foods. This is the stage when the modern-day circus begins, with gadgets, nannies and grandmas dancing and doing hysterical theatrics just to get 5 bites into a toddler’s mouth. This is where Vidhi chose to end her maternity book because she believes this is a subject that is still a work in progress and opens an entirely new chapter for all the urban Indian parents. Decoding Motherhood can be called a preface to every parenting book there is. The book is a guide for urban parents, that stays with the readers from conception to weaning off of their toddlers.
