Gurgaon, Sep 17 (IANS) Bollywood actress Karisma Kapoor Tuesday launched her book "My Yummy Mummy Guide" on pregnancy and motherhood. She says it is for 'desi' mothers.

"We don't have an Indian take on pregnancy and motherhood. I felt that this will be something that Indian mothers will be able to relate to," Karisma told reporters at the launch of the at the Landmark book store.

The 39-year-old has written about everything related to pregnancy and childbirth. The book also gives tips on how to loose post pregnancy fat.

A mother of two - seven-year-old daughter Samaira and two-year-old son Kiaan, Karisma says just like any other woman she too have to balance work and home.

"I am also a normal person and a normal woman. I have the same feelings and emotions that other mothers go through. It is all about priority, if you know your priorities, you can do anything," she said.

She did have guilt pangs when she left her children and stepped out to work.

"I felt the guilt every single day. When you have to leave your children at home, you do feel guilty. But if your work also makes you happy, then you must work. A happy mom equals to happy children," said the actress who was married to Delhi based businessman Sanjay Kapur.

She admits raising children is not easy and a mother can go through a certain level of frustration.

"We all feel frustrated, but we have to continue to teach our kids. Don't get angry with them rather explain things to them. It is very important to be a friend to your child," she said.

The actress of films like "Raja Hindustani" and "Dil To Pagal Hai" still looks the million bucks.

Talking about how to keep fit post pregnancy, she said: "It is very important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Eat what you want, but in small quantities."
