Conceiving a baby is one of the most crucial aspects of womanhood. It is that phase in the life of a woman when she embraces motherhood and her body blossoms itself to tackle the duties of being a mother. The metamorphosis of a woman into a mother is often challenging and demands a great deal of care, love and understanding. And here comes the role of a mother-in-law who can make a lot of things easy for her daughter-in-law with the knowledge and experiences she gained in her life.
So let's discuss some of the most vital tasks and responsibilities of a mother-in-law, waiting for the birth of her grandkid.
Love is the best food for the soul, and a 'mother to be' needs it in abundance. A compassionate mother-in-law ensures that the pregnant lady knows that someone has always got her back.
From organizing a baby shower to rearranging the whole house with the rest of the family members to make it better suited for the new-born, a mother-in-law seems to be the most excited person in the in-laws' family. She ensures an optimistic and cheerful ambience at home, which is very crucial for the sound emotional and physical health of the baby and the mother.
From the onset of pregnancy to the delivery of the child, the body of a woman demands a considerable amount of nutrition for the mother and the baby. But during pregnancy, most women suffer from nausea and vomiting, and are unable to eat properly. A concerned mother-in-law knows the food preferences of her daughter-in-law and prepares them for her, so that she eats well.
Be it feeding the daughter-in-law with gond ke laddu or satiating her cravings with aam ka achaar at odd hours, an affectionate MIL always makes that extra effort to ensure a happy mealtime for her DIL.
Burdening the body of the mother with strenuous daily chores, often leads to severe pregnancy complications. Hence, a mother-in-law must take the household responsibilities in her hands to save the mother and the baby from any kind of potential danger. This also imparts time to the mother to completely transition into motherhood and develop a stronger bond with the baby.
There are no better lessons than the stories of experiences. A witty MIL narrates her pregnancy anecdotes to her DIL, whenever she seems to freak out and lose courage. The stories of complications which the MIL encountered during her young age and the tales of her day-to-day achievements are a wholesome syllabus for the lady transforming into a mother.
An intelligent mother-in-law will always accompany the mother to her medical check-ups to get a deeper insight about the condition and growth of a child in the womb. This way, MIL is aware of the situation of the foetus and helps her DIL at home in taking good care of herself.
Talking about your difficulties to someone really close to your heart is one of the best ways to relieve stress. An attentive and sympathetic mother-in-law is always ready to listen to the troubles of her pregnant DIL, so that she can vent out and is left with no confusion and worries.
The role of mother-in-law during pregnancy is no less than that of a doctor, a friend, a guide and most importantly an emotional pillar of support that makes this 9-month long journey and very soothing and pleasant experience.
