To start with, this is my story. For many years I tried to delay and escape from the inevitable. For months thereafter, I was persistently persuaded by my near and dear ones. Finally, in late 2017, (yes I planned the year and almost the month as well), I finally took the plunge and entered the phase of ‘Motherhood’, albeit, with a lot of anxiety and fears. This is the journey of someone who literally suffered from Tokophobia-(fear of childbirth) since she was young but ultimately & contrary to popular perception, it became the biggest and most wonderful challenge of her life.
Sonia Sahijwani Saini is a law graduate from Faculty of Law- Delhi University, currently working as Assistant Manager-Law in a Central Govt PSU under Ministry of Petroleum at Chandigarh. After years of delaying and running away from the inevitable, after some more months of being persistently persuaded by her near and dear ones, she finally prepared herself mentally, emotionally and physically and decided to take the plunge and enter the phase of motherhood; albeit, with a lot of anxiety. She is the mother of her first son, Suhaan who is now one year old. Despite the various challenges it brings her way, currently she is enjoying this new found role and terms it the most wonderful and gratifying phase of her life.
