English poet and playwright, Robert Browing, had once famously written in his work The Inn Album, ‘Motherhood: All love begins and ends there.’ No truer words have been spoken and I understood this when I became an aunt last month. There’s no doubt about it, I’m in love and have been doting on my nephew from the time the nurses placed him in my arms. After holding him for the first time, there’s just one thing that came to my mind—this beautiful and innocent little baby was now completely dependent on his parents and family. That’s when I realised that no amounts of books can fully prepare you for what’s in store.
The experience is absolutely blissful, and I believe that it’s definitely a blessing to be able to care for a baby. This is precisely why, we at M&B make it our mission to bring you everything that can possibly help you on your journey to parenthood. From lactation queries to parenting concerns, our experts are here to answer all your questions. We even have articles busting myths, arming you with the right information you need to make informed choices when it comes to a healthy pregnancy and baby.
I’d like to leave you with words from Kate Winslet: “Having children just puts the whole world into perspective. Everything else just disappears.” In our November issue, we’ve tried our best to put things into perspective for you, and in our own little way, help ease your worries and doubts.
I do hope you enjoy this issue.
Till next time…
