Last week doctors from CK Birla Hospital for Women visited Harmony House, an NGO in Gurgaon and interacted with a group of over 50 women.
The participants were given a brief introduction of the hospital by their Chief Operating Officer (COO), Akshat Seth. Dr Rachna Singh, Consultant- Obstetrics and Gynaecology spoke to the women about the importance of menstrual health and hygiene and also answered some questions. This was followed by a talk by their Nutritionist Dr Deepti Tiwari who talked about nutrition and health.
At the end of the session check-ups were conducted for the ladies who required the same and medicines were distributed as well .They now hope to conduct such sessions with them on a regular basis so that more and more women can be educated about the benefits of menstrual health and hygiene
