The Scientific Indian

Our baby girl!

Nidhi Nova was born on 7th Dec early morning after a marathon labor (24 hrs) when she and her mother tried to negotiate the rites of passage. In the end, Nidhi had to be operated out as her head was turned improperly disallowing natural birth. Mother and daughter are fine.

You can expect a series of posts on childbirth and related aspects in the coming weeks and months. Needless to say, during the birth there were some scary moments and some moments that I am still coming to terms with. We’ll talk. For the moment, my daughter awaits a nappy change. See you in a bit.

    Wow! Congratulations!

    Now, I am waiting for that post that explains the novel combination embedded in the name Nidhi Nova. She has a headstart in the coolness coefficient right away!
