About the Author, in their own words:
Manisha Garg has over 10+ years of experience of working in the
healthcare and pharmaceutical industry. She has worked across multiple
areas – like market research, portfolio optimization, field force training
etc. In 2016, she quit her job to pursue writing. She started
Zarahatkeblog (https://zarahatkeblog.com) which currently has 250+
blogs across various categories like beauty & fashion, lifestyle &
relationships, travel experiences etc.
Manisha is very friendly by nature. She can connect with people instantly
with her smiling face and happy attitude. She loves to travel. She loves
to explore new places, new cuisines. Given a chance, she would love to
travel on all weekends and holidays. If cleanliness had a face it would be
similar to Manisha. Her urge for cleanliness borders on OCD.
Parenting and particularly motherhood is never easy, nothing can be more overwhelming than giving birth to a new life from our own life. Manisha has divided her journey into 26 phases right from conceiving till the life changes post-delivery. For all the mums, all this is so much relatable, most of us have gone through similar situations. The functions and rituals happening for the mom-to-be are not always comfortable. Manisha gives a real picture of her situations and feelings that’s the best part of her writing. Great deal of attention is paid on the medical processes and terms. How much important is support from a good doctor, has also been reminded. This book takes you on the roller-coaster ride of parenting. Although there is no right or wrong definition of motherhood, however every story of any mom is power packed with their own share of happiness, pain, tears, stress, fatigue, tiredness, uncertainty, joy and many more.
I would recommend this book to the women who are expecting to get a real idea of how things work and how they change.
My Rating: 4/5
