MP Women Gave Birth In Open

Samajwadi Devi (24) from Madhya Pradesh’s Dindori district was forced to deliver her child in an open field after doctors refused to take her in. Samajwadi affirms that the nurses had even slapped her and tossed her outside the hospital, saying that the baby had already died in-vivo.

I went to the hospital and told them I was in pain. They didn’t even look at me properly before they told me; my child was dead inside of me. I started screaming and crying loudly, fearing their words, but the nurses slapped me and asked me to leave the hospital. I was not even admitted. They forced me to leave the hospital, and I had no other option than to go.” Samajwadi Devi told

On her way back from the hospital at 5 in the morning, her labor pains kicked in, and she delivered a healthy baby in an open field with the assistance of a few women who heard her screams. They helped her deliver the baby by covering the area with their sarees to keep her out of sight of the public. They then used their knives to cut the umbilical cord.
Finally, they took the baby to the same hospital that Samarwati had been kicked out.

As a response to this, Chief Medical Officer of the Government hospital, RK Mehra, said, “The incident is condemnable. I am taking statements off of all the staff members present on that night duty. We are probing the matter, and strict action will be taken against whoever is found guilty. We will suspend the person in charge that night if needed. We do not condone this kind of treatment towards any member of the public in need.

The issue:

As shown by a financial study of the Registrar General of India in the state Assembly as of late, out of each 1,000 kids conceived, 52 die at birth in Madhya Pradesh, while the national normal is 39 deaths. In rural regions, the number goes up to 57 deaths as against 43 at the national level in rural territories.

Other incidents:

This month itself, another lady in Odisha’s Koraput district had delivered a child near a drain, after the doctors of a hospital didn’t admit her due to an absence of official records. Daina Muduli, who was a tribal woman, stayed close to the drain for quite a long time before being moved to the hospital. The doctors at the Saheed Laxman Nayak Medical College and Hospital denied all allegations and said that they acted on the case as soon as it was brought to them.
