Here’s How Pregnancy Looks Like For Women From Polar Opposite Classes

Updated on 5 January, 2017 at 4:06 pm By

Contrary to popular belief, pregnancy is not a beautiful bed of roses. It is the most stressful time in the life of a woman where not only her body but her mind, too, undergoes many changes.

Seeing the face of your child is a different feeling all together, but the nine-long months and the intense labour pain is something that is tough to bear.

For the rich, the pregnancy is a season for pampering, gifts, baby showers, celebrations and getting photo shoots done, while for the poor it is a season of extreme fatigue, misery and increasing work pressure.

Recently, Kareena Kapoor gave birth to baby Taimur. Her pregnancy became a topic of national interest and she was offered hefty amounts to grant the rights to publish exclusive pictures of her child.

Numerous photo shoots during the nine months made her much richer. And when she delivered, the nation rejoiced much like it was India’s child who was born.

For the poor daily wager, however, pregnancy is away from shutterbugs and a time fraught with struggles.

The constant insecurity in life, limited resources and lack of affordable quality health check-ups exacerbate the problem.

Take a look at the stark contrast between the two:

Now look at how the women in the lower strata of the society survive pregnancy:

Pregnancy or not, household chores cannot be skipped…

 

…and neither can checking on crops while being seven months pregnant.
