An Interview with Dr. Rolly Wali Sapru – Yoga and Lamaze Childbirth Educator

An Interview with Dr. Rolly Wali Sapru – Yoga and Lamaze Childbirth Educator

Rolly and I happened to meet at a women’s networking meet. She had a presentation to give, I was amazed with her energy and clarity of thoughts.

Many of you will already know her, for those who don’t know her, she is a Health consultant, certified Yoga & lamaze instructor and a believer in the power of nature to heal, nurture and grow.

Let’s read on here what Rolly has to share with us about her Life, success, yoga and pregnancy.

NJM: Please tell us about yourself and your family.

Rolly: My name is Rolly Wali Sapru, I originally belong to the valley of Srinagar, Kashmir, now settled in Mumbai. I’m 51 years old, have four people in my immediate family—my husband, two daughters and I.

I am a true believer in the power of nature.

NJM: How did yoga happen to you?
Rolly: Yoga attracted me from childhood, I was very active in sports and back then, seeing on Television & magazines I used to try different yoga poses. I also bought yoga books wherever I found them those days, I would buy Yoga books from the Wheeler book stalls at railway stations, whenever we travelled.

NJM: How does the day begin for Yoga Instructor Rolly?
Rolly: My day begins with a good stretch when I get out of the bed, freshening up followed by sitting in silence for some time, and then it’s time for me to go for my first class which begins at 6 am.

NJM: What lifestyle tips would you give to new moms?
Rolly: find out time to do some stretching and exercise to keep yourself fit and consciously eat healthy food at regular intervals because if you are physically well, you will have strength to take care of your baby, and as the saying goes- “sound mind in sound body”; so you can be mentally strong too to deal with the pressures of new motherhood, which are aplenty.

5 Breastfeeding Myths Busted

Pregnancy and motherhood open a gateway to the Myth-world! There is too much of information that is dumped on these new moms, most of which is nothing but myth.

Motherhood would be so much better and lesser of a worry if we didn’t have people burdening us with their belief system or with anecdotal advices.

I have been an exclusively breastfeeding mom for the first 6months of my child’s birth and I am still nursing him at 28months. This post is to bust a few of the myths that most new moms are confronted with.

Read on and do share this article with expecting and new moms.

Why choosing W-Pratiksha was a good decision? Hospital Review

It’s one of the best hospitals that I have seen so far with extremely professional staff and breastfeeding friendly doctors, who will educate you as a new mom, eliminating fears and doubts regarding feeding and new born care.

I was sceptical when it came to choosing this hospital over many other super speciality hospitals in Gurgaon (Cradle, Fortis, cloud nine etc) as it was comparatively a new setup then (2016), however I went ahead with it and I’m happy that I chose it.

I also happened to attend the ‘one day prenatal workshop’ which was pretty informative.

Few most important highlights

  • The hospital is breastfeeding friendly; my baby was put on my chest few minutes after being born (he latched on like a pro https://www.facebook.com/images/emoji.php/v9/f4c/1/16/1f642.png🙂 )
  •   The neonatologist/ paediatricians/lactation consultant in the hospital kept reiterating the benefits of EBF (exclusive breast feeding) every time they came for visits
  •   We were informed of many myths and wrong practices related to new born baby care.

***Other Special highlights***

Planting a tree


  • The rooms are super cosy and comfortable with all amenities like that of a star category hotel.
  • The food too was good unlike many other hospitals
  • The hospital gave a cute birth certificate with our baby’s foot prints and other details. 
  •   A booklet with details of our baby and month wise baby care, milestone chart and growth chart was given on discharge.
  • The parents are made to plant a sapling in the name of their new born baby; pictures are clicked and sent to the parents.
  • Cake is cut by the new parents with their doctor.
  • The staff does not take any tip, not even when insisted upon. https://www.facebook.com/images/emoji.php/v9/f4c/1/16/1f642.png🙂
  •   Most importantly, the hospital bill is not too hard on your pocket/bank balance! All this priced pretty competitively with other good hospitals around.

Cake cutting at the hospital

My experience could have been bettered if they had the hospital well-staffed on Sunday(the day I got admitted); however all in all we left the hospital with our swaddled bundle of joys and a happy memory.

I would be soon writing a checklist for to-be parents on finalising a hospital for delivery.

Disclaimer: This is not a paid review.  I am in no way related to the management, nor am I employed with the hospital. It is solely based on my experience there in the year 2016. If you are looking for a hospital in Gurgaon for birthing I would certainly recommend W, however kindly do your checks and do not depend on this one review.
