Report X: Antenatal to Postnatal and in between..

By DEBADUTTA DASH | secretary, Sukarya USA


Impact Story

Babita, Nalapar, Suya Vihar, Kapashera, Delhi

Ensuring Antenatal & Postnatal Checkups

Babita suffered from severe anemia and weakness due to poor nutrition, especially, during her first pregnancy. Due to financial struggles and lack of awareness, she had her delivery at home. Babita’s income as a house maid was not enough to afford private antenatal and postnatal care and her busy lifestyle makes it impossible to attend a government clinic. The community health worker educated & motivated her to attend Sukarya’s Urban Slum Health Action (USHA) clinic.This was how she ended up attending Sukarya’s USHA camp during her second pregnancy ensuring it to be trouble free .

At the  USHA  clinic she was given iron and calcium supplements and her hemoglobin level was measured  in a timely manner. The Doctor and counselor encouraged her to eat healthy foods such as vegetables, lentils, and fruit. The clinic also helped her stay on track with her vaccinations throughout her pregnancy. Additionally, the physician and USHA team encouraged her to deliver her baby in the hospital to avoid any complications. Babita had a healthy baby born at the hospital.  She came back with her second child for postnatal care and for her monthly prescription of supplements.

Currently both mother and child are the regular visi caretors of the clinic and they adhere to the counseling, prescriptions and guidances provided by the healthcare team about lactation and child health care.
