Motherhood is the best phase of life and to embrace it is a blessing. From the moment a women know that she is expecting a baby, to the eagerness’ and excitement to share the news with the beloved, is special. The excitement to flaunt her pregnant belly to waiting for the little for nine months and then the final and critical moment of giving birth. The love and the warmness of the little one is all what we say is Embracing Mother Hood.

The Yeh Jawani hai Deewani actor, Kalki Koechelin recently embraced the special phase of her life, Motherhood.

Kalki had shared her experience on the same and, now, she has treated fans with a glimpse of her going into labour with the help of her ‘Doula’. In her caption, Kalki Koechlin opened up on the importance of a Doula, who is a trained professional in childbirth and assists all the expecting women in soothing their experience of giving birth.

The picture sees Kalki in a tub with warm water, as she gears up to go in labour. In her caption, Kalki thanked her Doula for all the support. “Doula. I can’t experience childbirth and not talk about this word. The word comes from the ancient Greeks and meant ‘a woman’s maid’, it is now a support system of women for women during the process of pregnancy, labour and post partem care. I didnt know about the function of a doula myself until I got pregnant,”

Doula. I can't experience childbirth and not talk about this word. The word comes from the ancient Greeks and meant 'a woman's maid', it is now a support system of women for women during the process of pregnancy, labour and post partem care. I didnt know about the function of a doula myself until I got pregnant. No matter how much you read up, prepare or ask your doctor, there are challenges in childbirth that one can only know from experience and practice. A doula provides massages, breathing techniques and excercises during active labour, other support like hypnobirthing, a birth plan for the hospital, your first bonding with your baby, breastfeeding and so many other essentials which believe me, when you're a first time mum, feel like your first day at a new school all over again! In this photo I'm with my doula @newbeginningzz in the 'transitional' phase of labour, when you are almost ready to push the baby out and contractions are at their peak. For me it was by far the hardest part (so it's quite appropriate that the picture is a blur), and without Sanam's strong hands and steady voice guiding me through the breathing I'm not sure I would've been able to bear it. I've also had unbelievable support from @reba_beingalive a doula from @birthvillageindia who's constantly checking on me and making sure I'm not alone through all this. #sisterhood #doula #hypnobirthing #waterbirth #womenforwomen #pregnancy
