I am Anshu Bhojnagarwala, the mommy and writer behind First Time Mommy.
I started First Time Mommy in July 2013 to share my pregnancy and parenting journey with other first time mothers.
The arrival of the little bundle of joy puts the whole family into a frenzy of delight and excitement. The perfect little fingers and toes, tiny pink hungry mouth, soft down of hair, small squinting eyes and the ear-piercing wail of the baby, undoubtedly bring happiness, but can be very demanding as well. Nurturing a baby right from when she was a tiny seed in your womb to when she is grown up enough to look after herself is not an easy task and requires a lot of commitment from you. Nobody learns parenting in the womb; it comes to you naturally as and when you deal with your child. Of course, you make mistakes along the way; sometimes you realise them early while sometimes it’s a little too late in the day to correct it but it’s part of the learning process.
Though we have our family, friends and well wishers to give us advice, I believe we still need some hand holding from other mothers who are on the same first time parenting journey as us.
This is a one-stop blog for wellness tips for pregnancy to lessons on gentle and positive parenting and nutrition and health tips for both mother and kid.
I contribute articles regularly to momspresso and babychakra.
I also do product reviews, and have so far reviewed products for Tanishq, Kellogs, Eureka Forbes, Dr. Fixit, Baby First, Photojaanic, Chu Chu TV, Perfico, BumChum Diapers, Adlabs Imagica, Johnson’s, Casio, Dettol, etc.

I am also a fiction writer who loves reading, especially murder mysteries. No prizes than for guessing that Agatha Christie is my all-time favourite. Recently, I launched my eBook Tara which was well received by readers. Do check out my other blog if you want to read some great fiction – https://anshubhojnagarwala.wordpress.com/
