When a woman is pregnant, along with the excitement, comes the fear of labour pain. The idea of normal delivery can be daunting but it is certainly one beautiful feeling. Geeta Basra, who had delivered her second child a few days back, now recalled her normal delivery experience. She shared what gave her the strength to bear the labour pain.
For the unversed, after a long courtship period, Harbhajan Singh and Geeta Basra got married on October 29, 2015, in Jalandhar. After a year, the stork had visited the couple on July 27, 2016, and they were blessed with a little girl, whom they have named Hinaya Heer Plaha. On July 10, 2021, their family of three turned four as Geeta had given birth to a baby boy. Harbhajan had announced the ‘good news’ on his IG handle with a caption, "Blessed with a baby boy. Shukar aa Tera maalka."
In a conversation with Zoom Digital, Geeta Basra shared her experience of a normal delivery. Sharing what gave her strength, she said, "I think bhagwan uss time pe de hi deta hai shakti. There is some inborn strength jo aajata hai. It is not easy. You do not have a choice but to go through it. For every mother out there it is tough and I respect every man who is watching the labour; their sense of respect for a woman changes.”
Talking about why women fear labour pain and normal delivery, Geeta Basra added, "Every woman fears normal delivery as you do not look towards what will come. Every woman has the strength to do it and that is where we have a baby being born. For men, it is an eye-opening moment. They think how do women do it? Men may have physical strength but this emotional, mental and everything during labour it is a different thing. No one would understand unless you go through it."
Geeta Basra also talked about her diet and fitness routine that she is following after delivery. She shared that she is not looking for any diet plans as of now because her body is recovering. She mentioned that she is eating panjiri so that her bones, body and uterus recover soon. Geeta also mentioned that she is ensuring to eat full as she has to feed her baby. She said, "I am drinking milk, eating roti, sabzi and diet. When you are a feeding mother, you have to eat well so that your baby also gets all that."
It was on July 26, 2021, when Geeta had shared a picture of her newborn son in the arms of his elder sister, Hinaya. In the caption, she had announced the name of her son, and it is Jovan Veer Singh Plaha. The caption could be read as "Introducing HEER ka VEER... Jovan Veer Singh Plaha."
Geeta had announced the news of expecting their second child in March 2021.
