editor’s note

It’s been over a year, and for most of us, life has come a full circle. From being in denial, to frustration and finally, the acceptance that the pandemic is here to stay. We at Mother and Baby were on the journey with you— finding our own path as we fumbled and grabbled, holding your hand, and also coming to our own. And as we walked the path, observing, supporting and guiding you, we realised now more than ever that pandemic or not—a mum’s job continues. There’s no ‘work from home’ for mamas, no lockdown from mommy duties and hardly any restrictions when it comes to parenting. It’s the ultimate ‘essential service’ functioning ‘round the clock. Our May issue pays homage to tireless parenting, by covering every aspect, every nuance…

the mum behind the lens

For someone who spends a large part of her day around mums and babies, I was pleasantly surprised when Tarveen tells me that parenthood was never part of her plan. “We enjoyed our freedom with no responsibilities,” she says. She does not shy away from admitting that finding out about her pregnancy was more of an emotional breakdown than an unparalleled joy—after all, a baby of her own simply wasn’t the goal. However, as this new mum gets in front of the camera for a change, she looks back on a tough nine months that made way for an unconditional and deep-found love for her baby, and gave her a brand new outlook to life. Hear her story in her words.... THE TWO OF US I worked a nine to five job…
