Nisha did not have any other option except coming to clinic oganized by Sukarya as there were no other healthcare services available aroud the Arjun Camp slum in Delhi where she lived. Sukarya’s specialized health camp helped her go trough comprehensive chekups and consultation with female Ggynaecologist at her slum locality. Her Hb test revealed that she was anemic.
Keeping in view of her health assessment, Nisha was advised to consciously take appropriate diets including Iron led foods such as fried Gram, daliya, green vegetables like Palak and use Iron vesel to cook food.
Nisha received proper antenatal checkups (ANC) and comprehensive counselling services by Nutritionist on nutritonal intake and was provided with Iron tablets and Nutrition Food supplements. In the meanwhille, she was counselled for opting institutional delivery also. The community health worker of Sukarya ensured regular follow ups and regular monitoring of Nisha on prescriptions to overcome her anemic conditioning and taking her to Government hospital for instititional birth delivery.
The efforts put in yielded positive result. Nisha delivered a baby boy at Safdarjang Hospital (Government) and again visited Sukarya’s clinic for Postnatal Care checkups (PNC) at Arjun Camp.
While visiting at Sukarya Clinic post delivery Nisha says with smile on her face, “Due to Sukarya I have received proper medical care and now my child & myself are safe and healthy”.
