Pregnant woman made to deliver standing upright, health centre staff wipes blood with her sari
A pregnant woman was treated with inhuman brutality at Jalota Primary Health Centre in Banaskantha district in Gujarat.
On Friday (March 22), a pregnant woman named Rami Ben Gautambhai Thakor reached the Jalota Primary Health Centre with her mother-in-law. She was in labour.
The nurse asked the pregnant woman to stand by holding the iron mesh instead of taking her to the labour room. Rami Ben gave birth standing upright. The baby fell on the floor, reported Dainik Bhaskar.
According to the family, they did not get any medical assistance at the healthcare centre.
The family has alleged that the nurse used the pregnant woman's sari to clean her blood on the floor after the delivery.
The report further states that a number of pregnant women were made to go through a similar ordeal during their delivery.
The healthcare centre management, however, denied the allegations.
A doctor named Monica Patel at the Jawlotta Health Center said, "The hospital does not practice any such thing."
