Ludhiana – Orison Hospital today celebrated The Biggest Community Baby Shower at the hospital premises. A public function was organized to raise awareness about woman health and diet issues during pregnancy. More than 100 participants took part in attending the lectures and also in different mother-baby games.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Manisha Mittal, the Director Obs & Gynaecology and head of IVF department at Orison Hospital said, “Women are the central part of the society and every family, and their health issues are often more complex than those of men. We go through many stages in life, including birth, puberty, pregnancy, lactation and menopause. The health and nutritional, as well as psychological needs during all these stages are different. Even as a doctor, the role of a gynaecologist is more like that of a mentor and family member than as just a physician.”
Also speaking at the occasion, Dr. Rajan Damathia, Director of Orison Hospital, said, “For us, our female staff including the nurses and administrative staff, plays a pivotal role in running our organization. They are sincere, and bring an atmosphere of warmth and harmony to the hospital. We are an institute centered around our female staff, and I attribute our success to them.”
Dr Sunil Mittal, Director of Orison Hospital said “As the women are important to our society in all the aspects, they need special care. They sacrifice their health for the sake of their family. Even then they have not given preference to seek health services by the family. Women should take care of themselves. They are real architects of the society.”
A lecture on diet by Dietician Taranpreet Kaur was a part of the programme. She said, Knowledge of diet is really important for pregnant women, because they don’t just plan their own diet, they also take care of the eating habits of the entire family.”
