The West has a popular concept of a Lamaze program where couples are given guidance about pregnancy and childbirth. I curated such programs befitting Indian couples. Such sessions help natural birth, women have a healthy pregnancy, a speedy recovery after childbirth. Maternal physical and mental health is extremely essential for a healthy baby.

I intend to be a voice for oppressed people who are being abused in toxic relationships in closed doors at the workspace and at home. Working towards the mental health and physical well-being of women is extremely important for a healthy family and society. Through my antenatal sessions, I wish to touch as many lives as I can and generate more awareness and sensitise men and society towards the importance of mental health.

Does your work ever feel tedious to you? If so, how do you stay driven and motivated toward it?
When work becomes one’s passion it doesn’t feel tedious. Long hikes and trekking is my go-to thing to rejuvenate. I have completed iconic treks like the Everest Base Camp, Mount Fuji, My Kilimanjaro and Annapurna Circuit.
What are your hobbies and specific interests other than your profession?
Reading watching movies and trekking are my hobbies.
You have achieved so much in life, any specific advice you’d like to share with our readers to grow in life?
Take one day at a time. Don’t give up. Success comes to those people who help others succeed. The journey will be challenging and success is not always guaranteed initially. Perseverance, purpose, determination and passion in what you do will come a long way to finding success. Redefine your success and don’t allow the world to dictate your terms of success. You lead the way for others and for yourself.
