‘Hello Mummy’ helping pregnant women of Udaipur.

Three female police officers of Udaipur  have formed a Whatsapp group – “Hello Mummy” – to help pregnant women in Udaipur during lockdown imposed in wake of coronavirus outbreak.

The Whatsapp group – set up by Chetna Bhatti, Prem Dhande and Sudha Palawat four days ago – was joined by over 150 pregnant women of Udaipur living in the areas that are under curfew following increasing number of coronavirus positive cases in Udaipur.

These women reach out to the three Deputy Superintendents of police (DySPs) when they need any help. Four women has been helped so far by these police officers. One woman had mild pain while other three were transported to hospital for vaccination amid the curfew.

Palawat said around 100 pregnant women were connected to the Whatsapp group while 50 such women that are not having smart phones were connected through to calls.

Dhande said: “The women are sending messages to us just to enquire about the group while 4 of them asked for medical help. One of the pregnant women from Kishanpol area called us for help. After she had mild pain, we transported her to a hospital.”

Bhati said initially they have collected the numbers of the pregnant but felt happy when a few women called requesting to add them to the group.

She said the motive of forming the Whatsapp was that such pregnant women can be directly helped at the time of emergency and police teams deployed at various check post in the city were directed not stop them.
