"Efforts and dedication of PHASE staff saved my life"
Ms. Sango is a 20 year old woman who stays with her in-laws in Keraunja-5 of Gorkha district. Her family was badly affected by earthquake and the economic status of the family is poor. When she became pregnant she attended all the orientations on ANC provided by health staffs of PHASE Nepal. This enabled her to know various stages of her pregnancy. When the delivery date became due, she went through labour pain, but sadly enough none of the family members were at home. An FCHV and a mid wifery staying in her village rushed to help her. With the support of FCHV and mid wifery she was able to deliver a normal baby girl. Although they helped her in delivering the baby, they were unable to deliver the placenta. The placenta retained in the uterus. She was in utter pain. She immediately informed the FCHV to call health staffs of PHASE Nepal as she was confident that health staff of PHASE can deliver the placenta. The PHASE health staffs were busy working in ORC but immediately rushed to Sango's house upon knowing about her health condition. Ms. Kopila, Health Supervisor of PHASE Nepal gave oxytocin to the patient and was successful in delivering the placenta by using control cord traction method after 7 hours of efforts. Ms. Sango is thankful to PHASE health staffs for giving her a new lease of life. She says "If not for the efforts and dedication of PHASE staff, I would not have survived. I would have died without caressing my baby". I attended the ANC orientation because of which I was able to know about my pregnancy stages as well as complications that may arise during and immediately after delivery". After delivering the placenta, Sango was oriented on PNC that included breastfeeding, Kangaroo Mother Care (KMC), hygiene, immunization and family planning. She was also informed of the danger signs for post natal mother and new born baby to be aware of. She was given Vitamin A and Iron tablets.
