Motherhood Made Easy by Sharu Mukund is an insightful book that sheds light on vital spectrum of pregnancy-related topics such as maternity days and preparations, how to be a new mom, pre and post pregnancy practices and tips in the Indian households. The author, in particular, has written this book for Indian mothers and parents. She insists that the online forums are full of questions and answers by Western or Non-Indian moms. This not only looks backward but also a matter of concern for our country, with such huge population and high birth rate.
So the concern of the book is to educate moms on how to go in their pregnancy phases. Much of the information presented in the book is from author’s personal life; however, many tips and takeaways can be materialized by new moms who are often clueless about the entire process. Another thing that makes this book resourceful is its modern outlook. The author talked about traditional days and methods but that is non-existent today. So the ladies in the house that delivered via traditional methods either don’t remember the ways or it has become a thing of old age that nobody wants to talk. Also, nowadays pregnancy needs more active vigil than the older generation. Much has been changed through a couple of generation.
The book is short and crisp, covering important topics in just 11 chapters. The author has given proper information from conceiving to new born care to taking care of husband and everything in between. The trimester wise information is hardly available in our societies. This comes from her own experience, for sure. The hospital bag and what clothes to be brought for the new born and that cash tips and nudging husband for caretaking are hot served tips. Pregnancy period sways a lot, thus, one need to make balanced life with oneself, baby, husband and other family members.
Sharu Mukund writes like a mom blogger. Though the book is short yet she delivered all the sufficient important information. The book is written with Indian context, and the new-to-be moms that live in cities with a fewer family members can find solace in Sharu’s narrative. A must have book for pregnant women. Clearly the tagline of the book is apt: for the Indian motherhood. The book is a fantastic effort to educate women of our houses, societies, and nation. Highly recommended!
