Harbhajan Singh made headlines when he tied the knot with famous Bollywood actress Geeta Basra in 2015. The couple already has a daughter, Hinaya Heer Plaha, while they are set to welcome their second child later this year. On the same note, Geeta has some advice for moms to be.
Veteran Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh is mainly recognised for his achievements in cricket. However, there is an achievement of his outside the cricket field that had his fans talking, and it happens to be his Bollywood wife, Geeta Basra.
The couple emerged as a surprise when they announced their engagement and eventually got married in 2015, while their daughter Hinaya Heer Plaha was born in 2016. Meanwhile, the couple is expecting their second child later this year.
The good news comes when the world is battling the deadly COVID-19 pandemic. Although the vaccination drive against the coronavirus is underway, there happen to be some health concerns surrounding it.
Meanwhile, Geeta has a piece of advice for soon to be moms. She has urged them not to panic and get vaccinated for COVID unless the government has issued proper vaccination guidelines for pregnant women.
“Vaccination is something which is new to of all us. It’s a known fact that the vaccine helps keep the virus at bay, but at the same time, many doctors are advising to-be moms against taking the jab. The government guidelines and the medical organisations suggest that breastfeeding and pregnant women should not take the vaccine,” Geeta said, reports IANS.
“As of now, there aren’t enough evidences and studies carried out on the effects of the vaccine on lactating and pregnant women. I have also been advised by the doctors to not take the vaccine for now and I would urge expecting mothers to refrain as well till we don’t have further announcements from the government in this regard,” she added further.
India is currently sweeping through the second wave of the pandemic, while the vaccination drive continues, as the pregnant women have to wait for some time to get the same done. More than 2.22 lakh new cases were registered as of Sunday, while it also saw more than 4,400 deaths.
