Women’s Web is delighted to be partnering with Mamma Mia from Fortis Healthcare on a new e-book for expecting and new mothers, “eat for 2.”
During your pregnancy, what healthy (and delicious) foods worked for you? What did you eat to stay active at a time when a lot of demands are being made on your body? Did your mother, or grandmother, pass on some time-tested recipes to you that delight the pregnant mother’s soul?
Ladies, it’s time to share, and help us create something wonderfully nourishing – a ready reckoner for mothers at a crucial time of their lives.
“eat for 2” is going to be published shortly as a free e-book that will be available both here on Women’s Web, and over at Mamma Mia. 25 shortlisted recipes will be published – and the 5 best ones, will receive gift vouchers worth Rs.1000.
So, go ahead and share a recipe of your choice. You can do this using the Mamma Mia FB app, or over at the Mamma Mia website.
*Recipes need to vegetarian and should not contain alcohol or other substances known to be harmful to mother’s and/or baby’s health.

I was so engrossed in looking after my daughter, being both a mom and dad for her, that I myself no longer existed...
Being a single mother, my world revolves around my daughter.
Whatever people may say, the bond that exists between us is very different from a regular mother-daughter relationship. Navya, my daughter is the reason I am alive today.
This statement may sound cliched, but that is the biggest truth of my life. She is the reason I stopped myself from jumping off a local train years ago. The fact that she was growing inside me, that tiny speck of tissue in my uterus, had the strength to twine around my legs and hold me inside the train.
Alia Bhatt is pregnant and happy about it - it's not our job to accuse her of 'trapping' her partner into marriage or shaming her for the timing of it.
When Alia Bhatt announced that she and her partner, Ranbir Kapoor, were expecting a baby, all I could feel was joy. As a person who has been in awe of Bhatt’s acting skills and dedication, this news genuinely made my day.
However, the joy was soon replaced by anger and frustration when I read the first few comments (from certain unverified Instagram handles) on her pregnancy post. Here are the exact words of those who felt it was okay to question a woman’s choice:
“Baby k liye saadi kiye ho ya saadi k liye baby?” (Did you get married because of this baby or did you get married to make babies?)
