Dear Friends,

Greetings from Seva Mandir!

Hope you are well. We are nearing the monsoon and hoping to have a great one despite that our summer were not too hot this year. We will keep you posted on it.

I am writing to share with you the story of Sita who was six month pregnant and was unaware about the ante-natal care. You will learn in the story as how she received Ante natal check ups in these immunization camps 

Your support is reaching to many more such Sita in our region. We look forward to your continuing support.

Thank you and regards,

Deepti

Sita, lives in Badoliya village of Jhadol block where Seva Mandir runs an immunization camp every month. She was in the sixth month of her second pregnancy when she came for getting her tetanus toxoid shot. Sita had the notion that one needs only the two tetanus toxoid shots during the pregnancy and was completely unaware of the other components of antenatal care. Her report revealed that she was underweight, had low blood pressure and a very low hemoglobin level. The immunization team observed that Sita never paid attention towards medical care as she presumed herself to be healthy.

The immunization team counseled her on taking a balanced nutritious diet, taking adequate rest and also maintaining basic hygiene practices. During her second visit to the camp, the team observed an increase in the weight and hemoglobin. Her blood pressure was also normal. Now, Sita and her family is expecting a healthy baby in the coming month. The timely advice helped saving the lives of Sita and her baby.
