• Such a sweet and insightful post. Fear is a common thread that unites us and hopefully makes us stronger in the long run !

  • You are absolutely right! This is a fear every mother goes through, and somehow manages to cut through all strata of Mums… Well written!

      Thank you Meena.

  • When I discovered my pregnancy, I did not tell about it to anybody other than the immediate family till the time it was too obvious; to ex-colleagues and friends who I just spoke on phone, even much later. There was fear, superstition, call what you may. I decided I would not make too many plans or discuss future of my baby, until he was here. As a baby when he would sleep for too long, I would check his breathing. Atleast now, he is there in front of me all the time, I fear the day he would step out for play school. I don’t know what would happen to me then!

      I am sure Reema, you felt better writing about that. More power to you.

  • It’s wonderful that we have a forum like this to collectively hold hands!! Thanks so much for this post!
