Flaunting your baby bump has been considered a taboo in India. Our Mothers, Mothers-in-law have always advised us to keep calm about our pregnancy. However, with the evolution of time, there are beautiful females around who have broken all those myths and rocked their pregnancy like a boss. Pregnancy has become a part of style and glamour now. It is a beautiful journey for nine months containing small life in your womb. It is the time to glow, to evolve, to learn and enjoy. Every woman should be proud of this ability that we can create a new life on the earth. We all are blessed with those extra capabilities, so we are special!
As truly said, “Giving birth and being born brings us into the essence of creation, where the human spirit is courageous and bold and the body, a miracle of wisdom.” – Harriette Hartigan (A veteran writer on pregnancy)
