Godh Bharai or baby shower is a celebration of a woman’s pregnancy and motherhood and it is done to shower the mom-to-be and baby with blessings and gifts. In India, the traditional godh bharai is usually done in the 7th or 9th month of pregnancy, depending upon the custom followed by different people. All the married women of the family come to bless the mom-to-be. Mostly, it is done only for the first time, i.e in the case of a woman’s first pregnancy, but nowadays things are changing and many women have a ceremony during their second pregnancy as well. If you are looking for some amazing baby shower ideas, you can take a look at what these celebrities did.
In the Western countries, a baby shower is given where friends and family are invited, games are played and the mom-to-be is given various gifts. Most of these gifts are baby essentials and other things that are going to be very useful once the baby arrives. In India also, more and more people are hosting baby showers for pregnant women in the family.
Most of the times, a baby shower is organised by a close family member or a close friend and it is centered around a theme. Bollywood is not far behind. So many Bollywood actresses have had a themed baby shower.
