Passport To A Healthy Pregnancy: Contest Results!

Posted: November 8, 2011

The much-awaited results of the ‘Passport To A Healthy Pregnancy Contest’ are out! We asked you, our readers to share your secret for a happy and healthy pregnancy and it was raining pregnancy tips over here! Some myths were busted, some beliefs were reinforced and a lot of ideas were shared with gusto!

All the entries made for some wonderful reading and while each of you had something valuable to offer, we could only choose 3 winners from the 21 entries! The Women’s Web team and our guest judge, Dr.Gita Arjun (noted obstetrician-gynaecologist and author of Passport To A Healthy Pregnancy) did indeed have a tough task at hand! The entries were judged on the basis of both their relevance and presentation. After much deliberation, here are the prize-winning ones:

Our 1st Prize goes to Rads for her interesting entry disguised as a lovely letter to her daughter. Her tips were simple yet effective and they were presented in an innovative style.

Our two 2nd Prizes go to:

Trishna for her enthusiastic and informative post.

AT for her no-nonsense and useful tips for mothers-to-be.

Congratulations to all the winners! Please send your contact details (full name, address and phone number) to contests@womensweb.in and we will ship your prizes soon!

Thanks to each of the participants as well as to Dr.GitaArjun and Westland Books for making this exciting contest possible! (Do remember to check out their excellent resource, Passport To A Healthy Pregnancy, if you haven’t already).

    @Rads – collating all of them in one place is a great idea. We’ll try to get this done in the form of an e-book – with the permission of participants of course… and yes, we do organize contests – not as regularly as we’d like, but we hope to do them more often.
