I was actually thinking that I know what it takes to be a mother untill I became a mother. I had heard lots of stories and experiences of many peope of becoming a mother was kind of mentally prepared for what it takes to be a mother. But i must tell tell you that no matter how much you know, how much you are prepared for the change you cannot actually feel the same untill you experience it on your own. Becoming a mother is a heavenly experience which you cannot feel without experiencing it. Thats what happened with me.
I was admitted to hospital and after a painful period of 17 hrs my daughter Hridya came into this world. Me and my husband both wanted a baby girl and to god’s grace we were blessed with one. After her birth also i was actually thinking that now i have become a mother but that feeling of being a mother was still far away. I happy but that heavenly feeling was still far away.
The first time when the nurse brought my baby to me for feeding and she within fraction of seconds latched on to me was a very awstruck moment for me. I was like” How does she know that this is the way she can get her tummy filled”. But there are certain questions that has no answers. But I must tell you that was the first of many moments in my life where i saw a bond of love and care between me and my baby. Still the time of a happy feeling of being a mother was far as in the initial days i felt so bounded and stuck up.
I was feeling that all my freedom is gone. What have i done to myself? Why didnt i adopt a child? Such were the questions in my mind because i couldnt handle that boundation of being the caretaker and staying inhouse and all those. I was a free bird and i felt as if someone has just caught me in a cage. Slowly the time passed by and i sI was actually thinking that I know what it takes to be a mother untill I became a mother. I had heard lots of stories and experiences of many peope of becoming a mother was kind of mentally prepared for what it takes to be a mother. tarted liking being with her and staring at her. The way she used to look at me and react to my voice was very special feeling for me. Gradually she started smiling and then playing and then shouting. All these moments just kept on making that bond stronger and stronger and feelings that come when your baby smiles is the best thing a human can ever feel. I felt so much love for her that even in midnight if she woke up and wanted to play i could only feel lover for her.
We all here that mother’s love is unconditional on this earth but i must tell you that being a mother is undoubtedly a blessing. And the entire period is such that nothing but love, love & love grows and you never realise when you cross all the barriers of love.
No one knows how to come a mother. Its only after a baby that you learn to be mother and just as your baby grows a mother grows with her. Both are new and finding best ways to live with each other.
I only feel that being a mother is the best feeling in this world. It is this stage of life that you as a person start treating relations beyond give & take. It is this stage that teaches you to give unconditionally. It is this stage where you start realising that love is beyond any ifs and buts, beyond any gifts and surprises, beyond any bond, beyong this universe.
Hope you liked my experience
