The story of Ayesha

By DEBADUTTA DASH | Secretary, Sukarya USA

Ayesha, 21, lives in the Naalapar Urban slum pocket of Delhi with her husband, Naushad, who works as a tailor in a boutique. His earnings are not enough for their normal day-to-day living. Into her second pregnancy, Ayesha also suffered from poor nutrition, anemia, and weakness. She was scared as her first child-birth, a home delivery, was not free of complications.

It was a coincidence that she was connected with the maternal-child health & nutrition (MCHN) clinic of Sukarya through one of her neighbors. She was diagnosed as anemic and as a high-risk case for delivery. She received medication, nutrition food supplements, and counseling. She was continuously provided with home visits, follow-ups, and counseling support by the community health workers of Sukarya. She was also able to attend the monthly MCHN clinic.

The intensive care and support led to an improved health condition for Ayesha and her delivery was facilitated at the government hospital. And she delivered a healthy baby boy. 

Post-delivery she made regular visits to the clinic and received postnatal care services for herself and her baby. She was guided and counseled for baby care, child immunization, and exclusive breastfeeding for her baby up till 6 months and supplementary feeding after it. 

Ayesha is satisfied and thankful for the comprehensive health package that Sukarya has provided to her. There are many more Ayesha-like women who live in miserable conditions without proper access to maternal-child health care and services. There is a need for continuous support and services to ensure safe motherhood to prevent and control Maternal and Child mortality and morbidity.
