Pregnancy and motherhood are no less than a roller-coaster ride. Considering the significant changes you and your body are bound to go through, it’s natural for you to be inundated with advice (some wanted, some unsolicited). Thus, it’s always a good idea to read and gather as much information as you can. And if the information comes from fellow mommies, you are bound to be feel comforted. Here are some must read blogs.
1. Maa Of All Blogs
Prerna Sinha terms herself a full-time mom and a part-time blogger. Armed with a degree in economics, and a fashion designer by profession, she had worked in the garment industry for almost a decade, before kick-starting a blog to not only talk about her experience as a mother, but also as a woman.
Her website covers a range of topics across pregnancy and motherhood. Her blog states that Sinha is keen to inspire moms to think of themselves as individuals and go ‘beyond motherhood’.
