In this condition, in a similar way, the government hospital went to village Ghasra, about 10 km away from the house. The doctor said, “It is time to wait till evening.”

Recalling the pain of his childhood two years ago, Poonam suddenly starts flowing.

In the same post he says, “We have waited all day, a doctor came in the evening and the child is not open to the baby’s face and the child’s weight is too much, it will have to go, and the delivery will be there.”

Poonam, a small village in Mewat, about 60 km from Delhi, is a Sarpanch of his village.

they have three children. The smallest is two years old. But for the delivery of the last child, he was suffering from two hospitals, and he was also angry and angry.

He told how his family members arranged a jeep in the funeral.

“Once the jeep was slow on every pothole and then jumped, it seemed that the child did not leave, then … passing through rugged roads, Nakhon reached the government hospital, but the doctor was there to wait. said.” Saying this, the pain of that day and its effect was visible again on Poonam’s face.
But the talk did not stop at the hospital. Even in Nunh, the doctor refused to deliver.

Explaining the reason behind this, Poonam says, “There were not enough arrangements for the child to be born from the operation, the weight of the child was more than 4 kg, so doctors raised the hand.”

Access to health services to women
According to the National Family Health Survey, 2017, 66 per cent of Indian women do not have access to government hospitals in their neighborhood.

This is the real pain of women like Poonam in the country.
In this report, the reasons behind this are also counted.

The distance far away from government to the government hospital is so much that women prefer to resort to home remedies instead of going to the hospital.

Apart from this, the absence of female doctor in the government hospital, lack of doctors, lack of medicines are also some issues that make women vulnerable to the use of government health services.

In Poonam’s case there was problem, money and distance. Government hospital near the house was 10 kilometers away. But there was a doctor and there were many patients.

Poonam had to finally go to Government Hospital in Gururgram for delivery. But it was a matter of relief that Nuh’s hospitals allowed the use of their ambulance service. Poonam’s money saved the money to go to Gurujram.

But goddess living in Darbhanga in Bihar was not so lucky.
In the cold of December last year, the doll came to her mother’s house. The ninth month was going on. His father had already taken the number of Ambouses to the government hospital. But when the clock came, the Ambulas came not only.

Then, taking out a lot of heart, he further said, “That was the day and today is the day. We did not take any medicines from the hospital, nor did I show my father there.”

Asked where to take the treatment and medicines, the mother of the doll immediately replies, “Now we go to the big hospital.”

From a large hospital they mean private hospital.
