Happy New Year

Wishing All Mothers and their Families a Very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2009.

The year 2008 was exciting for Healthy Mother, as we started our Lamaze and fitness classes for would-be mothers and new moms. I am happy to inform you that two weeks ago I was awarded the Lamaze Certified Childbirth Educator (LCCE) certification by Lamaze International.

Along the way, in 2008, we were incredibly fortunate to have met with a number of people who have enriched our lives and those of our program participants. These include doctors who are willing to give natural birth a chance, nurses and hospital staff who show incredible empathy for mothers who want to give birth normally, often against unwritten hospital policies, NGOs working tirelessly for the welfare of pregnant women and newborns, journalists who are not afraid to highlight the worrying trend of increasing, unnecessary c-sections and the medicalization of childbirth, and last but not the least, those hundreds of would-be mothers, their spouses, and families who were determined to follow nature’s simple plan for birth.

We dedicate 2009 to all the above, and also to those thousands of childbirth educators worldwide, who like us, are working hard to effect this movement of change, literally one mother at a time.

So here’s wishing all of you a very Happy, Healthy, Safe and Prosperous 2009.

Dr. Vijaya Krishnan
