Many women opt to have their baby delivered in their maika. While some do it due to their family tradition, others chose to have their baby at their mother's home due to the many benefits associated with it:

1. Your mother is there with you: The first and foremost reason is that maika is the place where you mother is and she is someone who knows better than anyone else in this world. Childbirth is indeed a lifetime experience for a woman as she becomes a mother at that time and if you happen to be with your own mum at that time, it's a priceless feeling.

2.You are in your comfort zone: We all agree that in our hearts, the place where we've grown up at would and always remain our first home. It is our very own comfort zone, a place where we can be ourselves and not worry about others. Besides, you maika has so many special memories attached to it.

3.You get maximum rest: Since you're being cared for by your mother, she will ensure that you get maximum rest and are away from all the stress, which like it or not cannot be done if you happen to be in your sasural. Don't you agree?
