Paras Bliss, Panchkula organized a baby show titled Oh Baby!, in celebration of the special bond between mothers and their children. The aim was to showcase the endearing qualities of every baby and to extend supportive care to the mother and child.
Dr. Rishi Mangat, Unit Head, Paras Bliss Hospital, Panchkula, “We, at Paras Bliss, understand that for parents, a baby is their lifeline. This show is meant for them to enjoy the journey that is parenthood. The objective of the show is to help mothers and babies socialize, create a support group, build a mommy network, and help form a supportive environment for families—all in keeping with our tag line of ‘More for Motherhood’.”
The age groups of 0-1, 1-2, and 2-5 years were invited to participate. The show had awards for Twinkle Toes, for dance talent; Sunniest Smile; Most Aware Baby; and Show Stopper baby. Individual winners in each category were crowned by the jury of childcare experts and were given prizes. The jury included: Dr Krishan HOD Neonatology, Dr Monica Consultant Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Dr. Shilva Consultant Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Dr. Heena Consultant Gynaec-Oncologist & Endoscopic Surgeon, Dr. Nupur Shah, Consultant Fetal Medicine & Dr. S. K. Gambhir Sr. Consultant Obstetrics & Gynaecology from Paras Bliss, Panchkula; Ms. Ritu, Principal, Kidzee; Ms. Shardha Katapadia, President, Panchkula Women’s Club; Mr. Munish Pundir, President, Aasma Foundation, Chandigarh. All the participating children and parents were given refreshments and toys as a token of appreciation.
“We believe that every child is unique and talented in his or her own way. At the show, we looked at the basics, such as whether the child has taken all the necessary vaccinations, and more evolved aspects, such as parent-child bonding and the child’s exposure to stories and knowledge. It’s important to give children a healthy start so that they can make the best of their abilities now and in the future too. Well-being is about physical, mental, and emotional health, and we hope that shows like these will help parents take a fresh look at childcare,” added Dr. Rishi Mangat, Unit Head, Paras Bliss Hospital, Panchkula.
