The first of its kind event sets a record in the India Book of Records!

Mumbai - In line with Bio-Oil’s quest to make every motherhood journey a smooth and comfortable one, the brand’s new initiative Bio-Oil PregathonTM witnessed over 375 Mumbaikar mothers-to-be take their #BigLittleSteps towards a fitter motherhood. In it’s first edition, the event sets a world record of ‘maximum pregnant women walking together for fitness’ in the India Book of Records which saw celebrity mothers; Neha Dhupia and Mira Kapoor flag-off the 1KM symbolic walk, as an expression of self-love, at Hotel Sofitel, BKC.
The Bio-Oil PregathonTM aims at inspiring mothers-to-be to take #BigLittleSteps towards self-care and self-love in their journey to motherhood, which can prove to be a trying one filled with questions and uncertainties. The event emphasised on the importance of fitness during pregnancy with warm-up sessions hosted by Dr Vandana Shetty & fitness expert Puja Amin, owner of Movement Sanctuary. Post the completion of the walk, the mothers-to-be were pampered with a collective baby shower for all which included foot massages, a wholesome brunch spread, a lucky draw for 3 mothers who won a pre-natal photoshoot and a tête-à-tête with celebrity mothers Neha Dhupia and Mira Kapoor.
Celebrity mother, Neha Dhupia added, “Walking with 375 expecting mothers was a surreal feeling. Their joy and happiness is contagious and took me back to the time when I was expecting my daughter. Bio-Oil PregathonTM is a wonderful initiative, not only to bring expecting mothers together in support of each other but also serving as a reminder for taking those #BigLittleSteps towards self-love and focus on fitness during their pregnancy journey. I am really thrilled to be a part of Bio-Oil PregathonTM as I’m sure this has inspired many others to think about themselves too while on their journey to embracing a fitter motherhood.”
Mother of two, Mira Kapoor shared, “The Bio-Oil PregathonTM stems from such a beautiful and mindful thought of self-love and care during the journey of motherhood which usually takes a back-seat for every woman. Having been there myself, I can understand the challenges and self-doubt most of the mothers-to-be here must be going through. I am glad to be a part of Bio-Oil’s endeavour to enable these moms take #BigLittleSteps towards a fitter, healthier pregnancy journey.”
