Amrita Balachandran, our contributor, has a doctorate degree in molecular biology from the University of Pittsburgh. She was raised in Mumbai, Kochi, in Lagos, Nigeria, and has lived in the US for over thirteen years as a student and working professional.
She and her husband are expecting their first child this year. She's taken a few months off to prepare for her baby's arrival and to spend time with him during his early childhood.
Being pregnant abroad, she's been curious to understand whether there are significant differences in the prenatal experience of moms-to-be in the US and India! Check out her blog on her experiences as an Indian mum in the US.
