From January to April, 26 women died in maternity ward of Rajshahi Medical College Hospital. But in the first 4 months of last year this number was six. Compared to last year, the number of patient admissions has increased and the death rate has also increased. Doctors say the deaths were due to convulsions (eclampsia) and postpartum hemorrhage.
In this situation, the country’s safe and secure Mother’s Day is being observed on Saturday. The government has been observing this day since 1998 to ensure maternal health, reduce maternal mortality rate and ensure the health of newborns. Ensuring safe health care for all women during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum is safe motherhood. Awareness processions and workshops have been organized at the upazila level in Rajshahi on the occasion of this day.
