Vishal Gupta, Co-founder & CEO Momspresso.com, said, "Moms are at the heart of everything we do at Momspresso and our World Heart Day survey aims to understand if they are taking enough care of their heart health. We have found widespread concerns about heart problems but a poor focus on adopting preventative measures like eating healthy and exercising due to hectic schedules. As a society, we must help women prioritize their health and encourage them to take up healthy habits. We believe that this survey will be a step in this direction."

The survey was conducted among 3070 women in key metro cities, 98 per cent of whom belonged to the age group of 30-44 years. Of them. 70 per cent were non-working and 30 per cent were working.
While a lot needs to be done to ensure that women lead their healthiest lives, awareness about heart conditions and how to avoid them has certainly helped Indian women.
