How to Travel With Your Baby? Meet The Two Women Helping Mom & Kids Explore India

Dr Saakshi Gulati and Dr Nikita Mathur run Travel with Kids India, a venture that is making it easier for women to continue chasing their love for travelling even after motherhood.

How to Travel With Your Baby? Meet The Two Women Helping Mom & Kids Explore India

Travelling is a wonderful way to relax, rejuvenate and make merry. Many mothers want to travel but are unable to, due to lack of time, busy spouses, and just a safe space to do so. Many are also told, “You can’t travel after having a child” — and that’s exactly what Dr Saakshi Gulati (38) and Dr Nikita Mathur (34) heard after having their children. 

As avid travellers, they wanted to change this notion and give wings to other mothers to live their travel dreams. The two dentists and bloggers met on Instagram in 2019 and formed a deep friendship. While discussing their recent travels, they realised that not everyone gets opportunities like them to explore. 

The trips usually have 6-10 mothers and their children.

“After giving birth, everyone tends to forget about the mother and focuses solely on the child. We want to prioritise the mother during the retreat. While we do cater to both the mother and child, we want to ensure the mother’s needs are not overlooked,” says Nikita.

To help other mothers, they started ‘Travel with Kids (India)’ in 2021, a travel group for mothers and their children. 

The first mother and children trip they planned together was to Puducherry in October 2021, which was sold out in two days. Since then, they have planned 20 such trips across five destinations — Puducherry, Coonoor, Varkala, Goa and Mysuru — and have amassed over 75,000 followers on Instagram. They have also planned all-women’s trips to Lakshadweep, Andaman and Puducherry.

Their trips cater to both children and mothers.
