Three pregnant women have died of delivery complications in Jajarkot in a week.
Mankumari Bohora, 28, of Ragda-4, Ramita Budha, 19, of Pajaru-3, and Basanta Kami of Nayakbada-2 died while giving birth, health officials said on Monday. The major cause of their death was excessive blood loss.
Health posts in rural villages do not have resources nor expert manpower to deal with complications related to child delivery, said Lila Shah, auxiliary health worker at Nayabada Health Post.
The problem has been compounded because most pregnant women in the district do not visit health posts for delivery. They are brought to health posts only if there are complications. Shah said saving both mother and baby is difficult in complicated cases.
