Maharashtra News: In a village in Maharashtra’s Palghar district, a pregnant tribal woman was carried in a makeshift stretcher due to lack of a good road and gave birth to a baby boy midway. A 21-year-old woman from Eena village in Jawahar taluka went into labor on the intervening night of Saturday-Sunday, a medical official said. As there was no proper road connectivity to the nearest hospital, the villagers took him in a ‘dholi’ (temporary stretcher) and took him on foot for five kilometers through a dense forest at around 3 am. On social media platforms, some people have been shown taking the woman through the forest. The medical officer said that the woman gave birth to a baby girl in the middle of the forest.
Same problem happened before
Mother and child were admitted to Jawahar Patangshah Sub District Hospital in the early hours of Sunday. Medical superintendent of the hospital Dr Ramdas Marad said that both are fine now. The village is located in a remote area and does not have proper road connectivity. Last month, a 26-year-old pregnant tribal woman was carried in a makeshift stretcher due to lack of proper road to a village in Mokhada taluka here amid heavy rains. She lost her twins at birth due to delay in reaching the medical center.
Vaidehi Wadhan, president of Palghar Zilla Parishad, told reporters on Sunday that villages in remote areas do not have proper road connectivity. He said that health officials have been directed to take steps and avoid such incidents.
