Cheers to this supermom who chooses life every day and the energy it brings, and while being a selfless new mother is also a highly applaudable career-oriented woman, who does not sizzle-out when taking responsibilities, but decoratively embellishes her path with diligence and care towards her development in all spheres of her life, as a mother, a wife and at work.

1. How do you manage to be a Super-Mom every day?
My supermom journey gives me joy every day, I keep up the happy energy by spending quality time with my baby and by trying to understand his needs. As a mother, this journey has brought out a new perspective on my life. I try to do something different from the previous day. I look forward to seeing my son bloom into a healthy and cheerful kid. I aspire to do my best for my baby and for my family.
2. What were the challenges you faced?
The biggest challenge during my pregnancy journey was at the beginning when my baby was born, the challenge was Breastfeeding!

However, I familiarized myself with different techniques and got comfortable with nursing in public, which is a big deal! But then Being a new mom itself is a huge challenge. Although, seeing the cutest smile on my child's face gives me an exuberant recharge and I am up for any and every ups & downs that may come my way.
3. What kind of responsibilities/projects did you handle during that period?
After my 6-month maternity leave, I was expected to join my office and as soon as I joined, I was allocated to different projects. That phase of rejoining was slightly difficult since I had to manage my personal and my professional life in a balance, which was a task in itself. But everything soon settled and I was able to dedicate my 100% towards both these responsibilities.
4. How supportive was your company/team? (In terms of giving leave, work pressure etc)
My company was highly supportive. They offered that I work for half of the time in order to make my rejoining as smooth as possible. For a few months, I worked half of the time so that I could spend some extra time with my baby, but soon I came back with full force and now I am a full time working mom.
Team Cloudnine: Kriti, You make us all proud!
5. How supportive was your family?
My family members have been very supportive since the beginning and still support me completely. They take care of my son when I am out for work. They ensure that my child never feels my absence and he is always cheerful. They Look after him, play with him, feed him healthily so that he always gets the adequate nutrition required for his growth. My kid is always in the best of care with my family.
6. How was your journey of becoming a Mom on Cloudnine? What did you really like about Cloudnine?

The best thing I liked about Cloudnine was the way each person took care of me be it the nursing staff or the doctors. Everyone was very supportive and helpful!
7. How are you managing work after the birth of your child and how is your family helping you in accomplishing your goals?
I am extremely comfortable being a working mom now. Me and my family both try to interpret what is my baby's need at a particular moment and try our level best to provide that to him. I think the main present to me is the heartfelt support extended to me by my family which enabled me to work full-time. I am proud to say that I am a full-time working mom and the credit for this goes entirely to my family members who spend the entire day with my baby and make him feel comfortable.
