Passport To A Healthy Pregnancy Contest

POSTED: October 13, 2011

Every woman who’s gone through a pregnancy has a secret. Or many. Share yours!

Ranging from “Eat a spoonful of ghee every day” to “Listen to Mozart for expecting mothers”, we’re sure you’ve heard a load of tips for a happy, healthy pregnancy.

But, what did YOU do for a happy and healthy pregnancy?

This month, Women’s Web in association with Westland Books brings you the “Passport To A Healthy Pregnancy” blog contest. The contest runs from 13th October to 24rd October. Read on for more details and don’t forget to put up your entries on time!

Westland Books, our contest partner has an excellent resource for expecting mothers, Passport To A Healthy Pregnancy by noted obstetrician-gynaecologist, Dr. Gita Arjun. India’s first definitive guide for expectant parents, Passport To A Healthy Pregnancy covers topics ranging from pre-conceptional counselling to demystifying pregnancy and explaining away the many myths that surround it to the care of the newborn itself. The book holds rare insights into the physical and emotional needs of both mother and child—with a chapter dedicated to the modern would-be father as well.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE

1. Share your “Passport” to a healthy, happy pregnancy, and help other moms-to-be (and win prizes!) Blog about any 1 tip, activity or suggestion that helped you during your pregnancy – physically or emotionally.

2. Make sure you include the contest title in your post (Passport To A Healthy Pregnancy) and also the following code. (Just copy it in the html view of your blog editor).
