Sonam Kapoor on her pre-natal journey
In her stories, Sonam shared that she wanted to have a natural journey with as little ‘intervention’ as possible, for which she took the help of the ‘gentle birth method.’ She wrote, “My pre-natal journey was quite different. I was very sure I wanted to have as natural a journey as I could that would lead to a natural delivery with as little intervention as possible. For that I decided to take help of ‘gentle birth method’ with Dr Gowra Motha. She had written a lovely book called Gentle Birth Method that explains how to deal with the prenatal journey.”
She further added that the doctor is a practicing ob-gyn in London, and that she uses a lot of Ayurvedic practices, creative healing and homeopathy. “I’ve followed her blindly. I’ve had a natural quick birth thanks to all her teachings and I’m breastfeeding pretty easily”, wrote Sonam.
She further shared that apart from the linea nigra, she has no stretch marks at all, and shared pictures of the products that she used. She also revealed she consumed a lot of protein, took Vitamin C, and drank collagen. Speaking about pigmentation in South Asian women during pregnancy, she added that using sunscreen with SPF is the best way to minimise it.
