Part of taking care of your baby is taking care of yourself
Deepika Chalasani's Personal Story
"As a mother of 2 teenagers, I did experience various issues mentioned above. While growing up I was a girl with an
ideal weight. My first pregnancy at the age of 30 resulted in a weigh gain of over 25 kilos. I was not able to shed this
weight even after several years of pregnancy. I struggled with excess weight for about 10 years. I would lose weight
only to gain it back.
At 39, I was obese, got a few ailments (which were a part of my family genes) like diabetes, knee pains, palpitations etc.
Frustrated with the complications that arose because of my weight gain and the developments in my health, I decided to
study nutrition. I finally lost all the excess weight in a period of 2 years and since then have been able to sustain the same."

As per studies, postpartum weight gain is also fairly common. Several studies show, that over 30% of the mothers don’t get back to their pre-pregnancy weight. A large number of women, even though have gotten back to their earlier weight are still a size more than their pre-pregnancy weight and a fair number of them struggle with issues like fat around their waist line or bulges that they have never experienced before their pregnancy. 20 - 25% women who did not gain excessive weight during their pregnancy however tend to gain excessive weight after child birth.
In general, women commonly experience fatigue, loss of energy, body image issues which, many times leads to low-
self esteem, eating disorders, depression etc. as well.
