Maternal health risks India.

Maternal health in India

Maternity is joy. However, pregnancy comes with risks. Physical, mental and emotional issues in addition to weak health systems can take a toll on expectant mothers. The journey of pregnancy until childbirth is beset with barriers that women face. Studies show that 74% of mothers have experienced pregnancy specific anxiety (British Medical Journal) and 25% of pregnant women suffer from prenatal depression, mostly between 18-32 weeks of pregnancy (The Lancet). Women can be unaware of what to expect, and usually are not told about danger signs to look out for or precautions to take.
