MomStory Pregnancy Carnival Celebrates Expectant Mothers and Community Support

In a heartwarming celebration of MomStory’s 2nd Anniversary, Sahyadri Hospitals hosted the MomStory Pregnancy Carnival, honoring expectant mothers and spotlighting its impactful community support projects in Pune. The event, graced by celebrity guest Bipasha Basu, attracted a large crowd of expecting parents, underscoring the community's strong engagement with the hospital's initiatives.

The anniversary celebration emphasized the dietary needs of pregnant women, addressing the critical aspects of nutrition during and after pregnancy, which significantly affect both maternal well-being and the health of their newborns. Proper nutrition is vital for the baby's development in the womb and growth after birth. Unfortunately, in rural or distant areas, pregnant women often lack access to the right nutrition, leading to health deficiencies and complications for both mother and child.

At the carnival, attendees experienced a blend of education, excitement, and community engagement. Bipasha Basu shared her parenting experiences and engaged in heartfelt conversations with participants, adding a personal touch to the festivities. Dr. Mahima Bakshi, a Maternal Child Wellness Consultant and Brand Consultant to MomStory by Sahyadri Hospitals, reinforced the hospital’s dedication to motherhood wellness, stating, "Our commitment at MomStory by Sahyadri Hospitals is to nurture health and happiness right from the beginning of motherhood. Today’s celebration also serves as a platform to further our community support through new CSR initiatives, focusing on the dietary needs of pregnant women along with post-birth wellness needs of new mothers and children which are crucial for good health in society and the future of the community."

Navkaran Singh Kang, Assistant Vice President at Sahyadri Hospitals & MomStory by Sahyadri Hospitals, elaborated on these initiatives, saying, "We are thrilled to join hands with local Anganwadi and ASHA workers to provide nutritional advice to expecting mothers and the ASHA workers who would guide them forward along with special ladoos that assist with post-delivery recovery and improve breast milk nutrition. Our visit to Maher orphanage was particularly fulfilling, where our doctors engaged with the children through games and activities, and distributed snack boxes, sweets, and gifts as a mother would. It was a day of joy and meaningful community interaction. Our initiative aims to benefit 2000 ASHA workers and approximately 3000-4500 expecting and new mothers over the next 6 months in the Indapur & Solapur track of the Hadapsar belt in Pune.”

The carnival featured a lively Zumba session, a maternity photo booth with fun props, and zones dedicated to fashion and style, making the day both entertaining and informative for all attendees. The atmosphere was further enlivened with lucky draws and special giveaways.

Bipasha Basu expressed her delight at participating, saying, "It's a privilege to celebrate such a special day with so many inspiring mothers. The strength and joy of motherhood are evident in each story shared here. I am excited to see how our continued efforts will support and empower mothers across the community."

Through the MomStory Pregnancy Carnival, Sahyadri Hospitals not only celebrated motherhood but also reaffirmed its commitment to nurturing the community, ensuring that the journey of motherhood is supported with utmost care and compassion. The hospital looks forward to sustaining these efforts and fostering stronger community connections in the future, with a specific emphasis on the health and nutrition of women in underserved areas.
