ANJU: Given A Second Chance to Learn and Grow

ANJU: Given A Second Chance to Learn and Grow

Anju mostly lives with her own family while her husband is gone for work in Mumbai. In his absence, Anju had a miscarriage two months into her pregnancy with her first child. During this time, she had no awareness or access to vital information about what vaccinations or what precautions one should take during pregnancy. It was not until her mother and sister-in-law shared vital health information, learned in their SHGs, that Anju was able to properly care for herself and ensure the safe delivery of a baby. She learned lessons about the intake of iron tablets, vaccinations for expecting mothers, breastfeeding, Kangaroo Mother Care and danger signs. Today, she is grateful for these lessons, as they have helped ensure the health and continued growth of her three beautiful children.
