Shaili posted on 13 February

What Is It?

A baby on the way? Well, hurrah – that’s fantastic news. Now, all you need to do is get yourself flexible enough to make it a painless process. Your significant other may be there to hold your hand at the time of delivery, but the idea of someone telling you how to breathe while you’re undergoing probably the most painful situation of your life {sure, it’s perfect after the little one is out}, isn’t something you want to hear.

Thankfully, Mumbai has several prenatal classes that include yoga and physiotherapy sessions, to help you improve your flexibility and teach you how to breathe right, months before the big day.

Happie Bumps

Dr. Aruna Dharia has blended physiotherapy skills with pregnancy care to start Happie Bumps. There are two types – prenatal and postnatal programmes that include physical {the sessions are conducted twice a week and usually last an hour} and informative sessions {these sessions are carried out on Saturdays and can be attended by your partner as well.}

Cost: 10 sessions for INR 6,000
