Rinki - A Success Story
Rinki - A Success Story

                                                     Institutional Delivery – Breaking Stereotypes

Rinki, 25 and pregnant, lives in Inder Camp slum near Delhi with her husband and mother in law. Since her mother in law was a midwife, they believed that it was quite safe and easy to give birth at home and there was no need of going to a hospital. They had planned that Rinki too would be attended by her mother in law at home. The community health worker from Sukarya had already made consistent efforts to bring her to the health Clinic organized by Sukarya. She was detected with anemia and was found to be underweight. It was her first conception and therefore the physician and the counselor advised her to get the regular checkups done at the clinic and motivated her for the institutional birth. It was extremely difficult to convince Rinki as the family was guided by the mother-in-law. Her husband was also called in to the clinic for the counseling. The team reiterated him to plan for the institutional delivery of their first child as Rinki was anemic and underweight too. The doctors warned them about potential complications that might arise of giving birth at home. A regular follow up through home visits and bringing the woman to health clinics succeeded the efforts and finally the family agreed to go to the Safdargunj hospital for the institutional delivery.  

Rinki, with smile on her face says, “due to consistent efforts and comprehensive counseling of Sukarya, I was able to receive proper medical care and SAFE birth at the hospital – now me and my baby are safe”.
