‘Her birth weight was only 1.4 kgs, and when we got her home, she was 1.8 kgs. I had a c-section and since I didn’t hold her, there was not much connection felt at that time. There are some moms who get attached immediately to their babies. but for me it took time. She has grown on me now and can’t imagine my life without her.’
