At the monthly check-up

While COVID-19 still continues to wreak havoc on people’s lives, AMDA Peace Clinic in Bodhgaya, Bihar in India's eastern part has not ceased to provide maternal care to women in the locality. Although some of its services have been temporarily stopped, monthly prenatal check-ups have been continued thanks to local doctors’ assistance.

At the clinic, a range of precautionary measures against the novel coronavirus have been put in place. For instance, women are divided into small groups and are asked to make a visit at a different time so as to avoid congestion. The check-ups are usually conducted twice a month and around 30 women have been using the service. If required, the clinic also provides blood test, medicine and prenatal supplements for free.

On 29 January 2021, 35 women came to the clinic for their perinatal appointments. “I never miss my monthly check-up because I need to have my baby and myself examined. I must say I am really satisfied with the continuous service despite the pandemic,” a woman who visited the clinic said.

“My family and friends often talk about AMDA Peace Clinic and they are all for it. The local economy has still been sluggish, but at least it’s better than how it was when we had the first lockdown last year. We really thank AMDA for helping us out whenever we need assistance.”
