Why VRIKSHAM?

“Vriksham” addresses to empower fellow women and their family members with the power of global information on Pre-pregnancy, Pregnancy, Pregnancy Family Support, Childbirth and Breast Feeding and to make them more Confidant, Positive and Empowered on their Pregnancy and Childbirth Journey.

During my own Pregnancy I was overwhelmed with lots of advice and overcame with fear of not knowing if everything everyone was saying was the right thing, I did not know if it was a myth or a fact, moreover everyone around me portrayed delivery to be a very fearful experience and I need to be very careful, which made me so unsure how to go about it. I could not get the right answers for this from my own family, friends, internet searches nor at a busy doctor's appointment.

My own Pregnancy experience made me explore the unconventional world of Childbirth Education and Motivated me create “Vriksham” to Empower Women, so they do not face the same hardship I went through.

Pregnancy Care Classes serve to help expectant Mothers by teaching them about Pregnancy, Labour, Delivery, Postpartum Recovery and Baby Care
