The whole world is eagerly waiting and praying that this Lockdown period gets over as soon as possible, so we all can get back to our normal lives again. But hey we all know that this CORONA thing is going to stay here for a longer time and so now we need to change our view. With a new perspective, we need to accept and go ahead with this NEW NORMAL way of life.
Being pregnant especially in CORONA time is not easy, constant fear of the virus is out there. What will happen to me or the baby or any of the family members who get infected? – is the most terrifying question that keeps dancing in the mind of a pregnant lady. Due to which she doesn’t want to enjoy or celebrate her pregnancy and remains in the shadow of fear.
“Why so serious!” the famous dialogue from Joker the Batman series; is what pops out of mind when we think of celebrations in lockdown. Taddaaa …. Life is beautiful when we see the beauty in it. I love this line “Beauty lies in the beholder’s eyes”. So why not celebrate these beautiful moments of life together like Baby Shower.
Yes, you got me and you read it right I am talking to you about Virtual Baby Shower celebrations which have become the new normal trend in lockdown.
So, what if near and dear ones can’t come physically together to cherish this wonderful moment. They can still be around there on the virtual platform to savor this moment of happiness with you.
While many countries are relaxing their lockdown rules. And online delivery is one of the best options available without you going out, things can be home delivered to you. You can order some baby shower decorations online via Amazon, Flipkart and several other gifting websites are also available. Decorate your house as per your mood, get dressed up the way you would have got in for a physical ceremony.
Prepare the dish that you want to eat for celebrations – a three-course or five-course meal, depending on the chef inside you. This is the best part because you can make that perfect dish which you want, without worrying about the guest’s choices and preferences. Make sure that the menu card for the special occasion consists of healthy and delicious food keeping in mind it is for a pregnant lady. Sometimes you can go overboard with things, but health precautions to be taken first.
Your family members can make it or it would be more special if the would-be Daddy prepares a savory meal for the new Mommy as per her taste buds. The smile on the would-be mother’s face would be priceless and she would glow like a sparkling diamond.
Don’t forget to order fresh flowers and a special cake to celebrate this moment. While ordering the cake we recommend fresh fruits cake, try to avoid chocolate or caffeine-based product. No liquor, please. Do write to us if you need some healthy and yummy recipes for the mommy.
Change the room décor if possible, as per the baby shower decorations. Bright Pink or Blue curtains with matching bedsheets or sofa covers would just highlight the baby shower mood. You could also post cute baby pictures on the wall.
Technology has evolved at a much faster pace, and connecting people via technology platforms have been one of their biggest milestones. With so many free and paid online platforms are available for virtual meetings giving us the real-time experience of being there for one another.
Some free platforms like Zoom, Namaste.in, Google Meet or hangouts, Join.me, Facetime, Skype, What’s app group call are really great for connecting a bunch of people and so many apps are coming up to catch up in this space.
Our Super Mom from the team of Bless You Mom recently arranged the first virtual baby shower via zoom. It was fun, spontaneous, enjoyed by the lovely couple turning to be new parents soon along with their family and friends present online.
It all started with the first thanksgiving prayer to the Lord with worship, followed by blessings and some fun games. Our super mom made a special video for the ‘new parents to be’ to cherish this wonderful moment for the couple and everyone to bless the baby for safe arrival into this world. They all loved it and went gaga over it.
While the evening turned out to be a memorable one for everyone who attends the virtual baby shower event. This shows us that life never stops, and we should never stop smiling and welcoming it, this is a new lesson experienced and learned very well. It has definitely earned a special place in my memories wing.
Team of Bless You Mom prays to Almighty God to bless and protect the baby and family, and we wish that the new bundle of joy fills their life with happiness unending.
