“The hand that rocks the cradle can also rock the boardroom!” This quote epitomizes the multifaceted roles of healthcare professional mothers, who navigate demanding careers with unparalleled commitment and diligence. Despite their formidable success, they bear the weight of dual responsibilities – managing homes, children, and professional obligations. In Indian society, the onus of childcare primarily falls on mothers, adding to their already challenging balancing act.

10. Saumya Sharan, Senior Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Gurgaon

“It takes a village to raise a child” – and when the community doesn’t come together to support the mother, it impacts the entire society. On this International Mother’s Day, let’s become a part of the village, as we support our mothers and their Mental Health journey by being part of a system that nourishes rather than depletes. This nourishment can take the form of flexibility and freedom at the workplace, access to adequate and good quality Mental Health resources, community-based programs and workshops designed to nurture their well-being, grass root level policy changes that support them personally and professionally and being a society that collectively works on showing up for Mothers. As for Mothers, it’s important to fill your cup, focus on your Mental Fitness, reach out for help when things get overwhelming, ask for support when needed and remind yourself that there is nothing known as a perfect parent, it needs to be about striving to be ‘good enough’. 

11. Dr. Shreyasi Sharma, Founder & Director of Fetal Medicine & Genetics Centre, Gurgaon

Joy of giving reflects motherhood. There is nothing more unconditional than experiencing motherhood. Mother’s Day is celebrated once a year but for us, every day is Mother’s Day. At Fetal Medicine and Genetics Centre, we see mothers who go through an eventless pregnancy and mothers who go through inexplicable struggles and we salute the indomitable spirit of all such mothers who are willing to nurture even the faintest hope. We see the joy, the care, the expectations, the dreams, the disappointment, the hope and the myriad of untellable emotions in the journey of a mother and we are proud to walk the distance with every emotion. Be it a simple scan to a level 2 scan to complex fetal interventions, with sincerity we live the emotion with the mothers all the while striving to induce hope and happiness. The only intention is to see the million-watt smile on the face of the mother when she holds her child in her arms.

Being a mother makes me feel more complete and stronger and helps me in my emotional well-being, and being a Professional helps me retain my individual identity and confidence which is very important for every woman.
