‘Shreya, Neeti and I kept in touch throughout our pregnancies’
Harshdeep Kaur welcomed her son, Hunar, on March 3. While it’s just been three months since she embraced motherhood, the singer has already learnt to strike a balance between her personal and professional life. “Earlier, I used to just do my riyaaz and recordings at home, but now, I sing to him (Hunar) all the time. That way, I’m composing new songs and lullabies. Sometimes, when he sleeps, I quickly record a song in my home studio,” she says.
Delivering a baby during a pandemic is no cakewalk, and Kaur admits she was worried to step out for check-ups: “But, we took all precautions, and our doctor was very encouraging. Another thing I was worried about was my vaccination, but I’m happy that they’re vaccinating lactating mothers now.”
The Mere Baabula (Jawaani Jaaneman; 2020) singer has also been sharing tips with “close” friends — singers Shreya Ghoshal, who delivered a baby boy last month, and Neeti Mohan, who is currently in her final trimester.
“We kept in touch throughout our pregnancies,” Kaur continues, “When I told Neeti that I’m going to be a mother, she kept my hand over her belly and told me she is pregnant as well... She keeps asking about my delivery experience, things she should pack in her hospital bag. As for Shreya, I was very concerned and kept checking on her.”
