Hyderabad: Two books called “Pregnancy Nutrition” and “Freedom from PCOD” aimed at raising awareness about pregnancy and polycystic ovary syndrome were launched by KIMS Cuddles on Sunday.
Launched by former Indian cricket captain Mithali Raj, the books were co-authored by KIMS Cuddles Clinical Director Dr K. Shilpi Reddy and Chief Clinical Dietitian SL Priyadarshini Kadiyala.
“These books will help women understand what is good in pregnancy and how PCOS issues can be effectively treated. Realizing the depth of the subject and its potential, KIMS Cuddles has embarked on a new initiative to launch books that serve as ready-to-use calculations,” said Dr. B Bhaskar Rao, MD, KIMS Hospitals.
Dr Shilpi Reddy said: ‘I have often noticed that women who come to see me tend to forget our oral conversations. But when published in book form, the benefits are long-lasting.
Due to their sedentary lifestyle, pregnant women are now prone to diabetes. Educational constraints and peer competition have reduced most children to bookworms. There is hardly any outdoor activity for them, leading to an increase in PCOD cases, she said.
