Globally every year, over 500,000 women, a quarter of them Indians, die of pregnancy related causes. The number of infants dying at birth, or soon after, are many times more. Most of these lives could be saved if they had access to timely, affordable and quality maternity care.
MIDWIVES SAVE LIVES
The Fernandez Hospital Educational and Research Foundation is collaborating with Fernandez Hospital in promoting the concept of PROMISE. The Foundation’s Professional Midwifery Services campaign focuses on selecting the right candidates to be educated and trained as midwives within the maternity hospital environment. They will then become the frontline of maternal health provision, interacting with colleagues across primary, secondary and tertiary care services
After the delivery of the baby, the body of the new mother starts recovering from the phases of pregnancy and delivery.
During the first week after delivery, some women manage to have normal glucose level in the blood,
but some may have odd sugar level swings. Normally, blood sugar level is checked at various times
before you get discharged from hospital in order to check if gestational diabetes has been resolved or not.
