Review: ReMedi Spa and Beauty Lounge

ReMedi Spa & Beauty Lounge

Busy, exhausted, over-worked and tired are words usually associated with moms. And I am no exception. After managing a kid, a house and a job all through the month, I look forward to some relaxing me-time, which comes as my monthly visit to a spa or a salon.

Located in a cozy lane bang opposite Palladium Mall, the swanky spa is divided into two zones – the salon and the spa section.

How I Managed My Gestational Diabetes

November 14 is celebrated as World Diabetes Day across the world. I realised this pretty late during the day, hence this post is coming a day later.  I always wanted to write on this topic but could never gather the courage to revisit the only ‘not-so-happy’ part of my otherwise beautiful pregnancy. Yes, I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes very early during my pregnancy.  Those who know me would know how much I dread the disorder. I lost my dad to diabetes 10 years ago. He was only 50.  So, I had my reasons to freak out when I first got to know about my high sugar levels.  And I did freak out and how! From “how did I get it?” to “how would I mange it” to “will my baby also be diabetic?,” my mind was full of questions (and misconceptions too) that I wanted someone to clear. Soon, I was on the mission to manage my sugars and my pregnancy. And I did it, thanks to my gynaecologist and my diabetologist. Here are a few things I did about gestational diabetes and sailed happy and healthy through the nine months…

Pregnancy is a special phase in a woman’s life. And it is a great feeling to see how women today are enjoying their pregnancies – from capturing memories of their bump-y selves in professional maternity photo shoots, planning baby moons to reading a book from beginning to end to catching up on sleep – they are doing it all. They work, they work-out and carry on their professional and social routines without letting ‘being pregnant’ become a hurdle.
