Braking age-old barriers
Chaya Tanaji Dukre aged 22 was pregnant. However she was not aware of the important dos and donts during pregnancy. Her family was poor and did not even dream of accessing hospital care at the time of delivery. Their village has no proper road or and transportation facility to access proper medical care. Therefore a healthy and normal delivery was ruled out.
MGVS recruits local female volunteers who go into rural communities and talk to mothers about the life-saving benefits of going to hospital to give birth. We provided guidance to Chaya and her family regarding the care to be taken during the pregnancy and advised her on her diet so that the health of mother and child is not compromised. At the time of the delivery MGVS helped transport Chaya to the MGVS Health Center. We also provided food and medicine and arranged to transport her and the child back home after the delivery.
As per Indian traditions Chaya would have given birth at home. Our intervention ensured a huge change in mindset. MGVS provided antenatal care during her pregnancy, which resulted in a normal and healthy delivery. After witnessing this case convincing other pregnant women to go in for an institutional delivery became easier. We had broken the barrier.
