At Sayaji we can successfully face the toughest maternity and child care challenges by working as a team.
Bhanuben states that we used to give birth in a traditional way that was firmly established in our minds. However, after taking the training of Alternative Birth Position in 2019, we have started weaving things like walking, sitting, giving liquid food, exercise to pregnant ladies.
Two years ago, the water entered inside the ward due to flooding in Vishwamitri and even crocodiles could be seen moving. The duties she performed with resident doctors and support staff for three consecutive days at that time are still remembered today.
At Sayaji Hospital, she was involved in the challenging task of giving birth to the child of first pregnant woman infected with corona. At that time there was fear in every one mind in Rukmani Chainani Maternity ward. To kept the mother and child was very tough for them. They rushed to the hospital early the next day, downloaded a video of the baby being kept in the nicu, reassured the mother by showing it on the mobile phone. After that she asked for duty in the ward for her own.
Bhanuben provides three hours of child health care services at Ramkrishna Mission Kalali Centre on Sundays. She equally fulfilled her family duties along with the patient service and care.
