Hyderabad's Pregnant Moms Walk at Radisson Blu
It is a great feeling to get to know that you are pregnant, but it's even better to be pampered and made to feel special by walking the ramp in style to celebrate their motherhood.
Around 30 moms-to-be of the city walked the ramp in an enriching, joyous and memorable experience here in the city at the Hotel Radisson Blu. Organized jointly by Child magazine, India's largest selling parenting magazine, and Cordlife, a leading stem cell banking organization, the event 'NeoLife' has been conceptualized to help mothers in their journey to become a mother from a woman.
While Round One had them introducing themselves, Round Two saw the contestants sharing a beautiful memory of either the time they came to know they were pregnant or any touching moment or memory during the months they have been expecting. In Round three they had a question and answers round where they picked up a judge from among the jury and answered a question each.
The judges for the contest included Shilpa Reddy, model, fashion designer, and fitness columnist, Sonar eddy, founder of Home Therapy, a decor store that has recently been launched in the city, Ishita Singh, a fashion designer whose label is Anhad, Dr. Shilpi Reddy, a gynaecologist and obstetrician from The Birthplace, Upmannyue Roychoudhury, GM, Sales & marketing, Cordlife, and Geetika Sasan Bhandari, Editor, Child magazine.
