In an endeavour to provide the new mothers with a bout of fun activities, Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road has taken a unique initiative by organizing a fun-filled day. The celebration took place in the hospital and saw participation from almost 50 new moms who shared their experiences of motherhood.

Doctors supported at the event were Dr Mangala Patil, Gynaecologist, Dr Vishal Parma, Paediatrician, Dr Mayola Dsouza and Dr Amit Shah
Being a mother is every woman’s dream, and it is a life-altering experience. Even after enduring 9 months of joy, stress, pain, and labour, a mother does whatever it takes for her child. A mother dedicates her whole life to her child and shoulders all the responsibilities right from nursing the baby to helping him/her grow as a healthy adult. Not only this, mothers are good at multi-tasking and are able to strike a good work-life balance. Wockhardt Hospital, Mira Road pledged to honour mothers by giving them the gift of health by organizing a program to mark Mother’s Day.
Dr Amit Shah, Consultant Child Pychologist, Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road said, “A mother plays so many pivotal roles. She is a manager of the family, a teacher for her children, a nurse for family members, a good chef, and even a counsellor. She discharges all her responsibilities with hard work, dedication, and honesty. The event was conducted at the hospital to applaud the spirit of such inspiring women. The event also helped the new mothers and their family members to interact with the experts and clear all their doubts regarding parenting. Nowadays, many new mothers are from nuclear families and have questions regarding nursing the baby, the right kind of nutrition, or how to manage the baby. The highlighted the challenges faced by women during and after pregnancy and showcase the magical bond between a mother and a child. So, educative sessions were conducted by the experts. They were explained how to cope with the challenges of motherhood. Many new mothers who came along with their husbands and babies shared their experiences which were helpful for other mothers attending the event.”
Dr Mayola D'Souza, Consultant physiotherapist, Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road said “The event started with refreshments and witnessed a number of interesting activities like dancing, exercises, photographs at the selfie-booth, cake-cutting, and enjoying the day. Mothers wrote messages on the board regarding their wishes when it comes to themselves or their babies or about the event or even the treatment provided at the hospital. Women poured out their heart-touching experiences. We aim to give holistic care to each and every mother. It was a proud moment for us as we were able to conduct Mother’s Day activity and give them some moments to cherish. At the end of the event, after snacks, all the mothers were gifted a Tulsi (basil) plant which is a symbol of good health to appreciate their time and valuable presence. We also urged all the mothers to take care of themselves too along with their babies."
“My experience with Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road during pregnancy has been great always. The hospital is committed to providing uninterrupted services to patients. This event was fun and energetic. We are thankful to doctors for sharing vital tips regarding baby care. I look forward to attending more such lovely events in the near future and am delighted to be a part of the hospital as it is just like a family for all of us,” concluded Mrs Sheetal Shah, a newly mother.
