Gone are the days when women would only stay back home after motherhood. Today, mums embrace motherhood along with their profession. In a candid interview with BabyChakra, mum Shreya Jain shares about her pregnancy, motherhood and content creation journey.
I live with my family in Indore. Before I embarked on my motherhood journey, I was working as an assistant professor later I turned into an IT professional. Currently, I am in an IT company and discovering my journey toward parenting. I have a son named Sadhya.
My journey as a content creator started while I was searching for good educational material for my son during the lockdown. I not only found good stuff for my son but also discovered a creator inside me.
Soon I realised that many parents are facing difficulty in keeping their kids busy and engaging them in productive activities. I started sharing different ways to engage kids through DIY activities. I am passionate about learning with fun.
There are lots of bloggers who have motivated me and helped me to continue my journey as a creator.
Yes, of course. I mean if you have the ability, you can definitely create awareness and help other mums to share their experiences and they can fulfil their dreams by earning.
Pregnancy for me wasn’t easy. I had some hormonal issues during my third trimester resulting in diabetes. A few hours after giving birth to a baby boy through a C- section, I had a brain haemorrhage due to which I had to formula-feed my baby. Struggling with lots of medicine, pregnancy pain, and motherhood was difficult to handle. It took time but everything got sorted. But the biggest challenge was managing everything alone.
When it comes to skincare products for my kid, I always read the label keeping a few things in mind which include being chemical-free and pediatric-approved. I also avoid products that contain dyes and perfumes and go for products that are pocket friendly. Recently, I am using Babychakra skin and hair care products for my son and they are delivering the best for my child’s skin.
I think that the two major things that you need are support and understanding from your partner. I am lucky that I had both.
My relationship with my partner has become stronger. The only difference that I have noticed is we both give our son the topmost importance.
No, I didn’t do any pregnancy-specific activities. But I was physically active throughout my pregnancy.
My son loves to cook, so I involve him in a few household chores. He also helps me to fold his clothes, and clean his room and does not disturb us while we’re working from home.
For his physical growth, we go to the park nearby where he loves playing football, enjoys cycling, swinging, running and playing many other games. As most of the time, we are at home, we also play many indoor games as well like hide and seek, jumping, logical games and lots of activities.
It totally depends on his choice when it comes to picking a profession. I just want him to be kind to others. Stay connected with his roots and give time for family and religion.
Mum Shreya Jain is an example of a working mum who has been managing a full-time job, content creation and everything else really well. Despite her pregnancy challenges, she’s stood strong and inspires mums to do what they believe in.
