“At Momspresso, we strongly felt that the real issues that impact the lives of mothers have been underrepresented across conversations around us. As the largest community of mothers, we decided to take the onus of creating a survey that presents the voice of mothers, a view that is crucial to the overall progress of the country.

“Through this survey, we are bringing forth these voices that often remain unheard, and present their point of views through our platform. We believe that these concerns and aspirations of mothers will now reach the right audience,” Momspresso Co-founder & CEO Vishal Gupta said. (IANS)
