Women in the village are not aware of the need of medical intervention while delivering babies.
Khanti Sharki of Atichaur Village is nine months pregnant. While regular health checkup is essential during such condition, the 30-year-old mother of already four kids has never even seen a health post. All her children were born at home and Khanti does not think medical facility is necessary for the one growing inside her womb, either.
“No one in our village goes to the health post. Babies are born at home,” said Khanti.
