Worried about pregnancy, childbirth, post pregnancy weight and more related topics? All you desi mothers have a new book in store for you. Bollywood actress Karisma Kapoor launched her book 'My Yummy Mummy Guide' on Tuesday, September 17. The book is on pregnancy and motherhood.
The book launch took place at the Landmark book store in
Gurgaon. "We don't have an Indian take on pregnancy and motherhood.
I felt that this will be something that Indian mothers will be able
to relate to," said Karisma. The 39-year-old has written about
everything related to pregnancy and childbirth. The book also gives
tips on how to loose post pregnancy fat.
Karisma is mother of two children - seven-year-old daughter Samaira and two-year-old son Kiaan. She says just like any other woman she too balances time between work and home. "I am also a normal person and a normal woman. I have the same feelings and emotions that other mothers go through. It is all about priority, if you know your priorities, you can do anything," she said.
"I felt the guilt every single day. When you have to leave your children at home, you do feel guilty. But if your work also makes you happy, then you must work. A happy mom equals to happy children," Karisma added.
She admits that a mother can go through a certain level of frustration. "We all feel frustrated, but we have to continue to teach our kids. Don't get angry with them rather explain things to them. It is very important to be a friend to your child," she said.
Last but not the least, she also touches upon being fit and
eating good. She said, "It is very important to maintain a healthy
lifestyle. Eat what you want, but in small quantities."
