continuing health and wellbeing and has other long-lasting benefits researchers said | Source: Thinkstock Images Related News Midwifery has a crucial part to play in saving the lives of millions of women and children who die during and around the time of pregnancy according to a new study A major new Series published in The Lancet produced by an international group of academics clinicians professional midwives and policymakers shows the scale of the positive impact that can be achieved when effective high-quality midwifery is available to all women and their babies Apart from saving lives it also improves their continuing health and wellbeing and has other long-lasting benefits researchers said The authors also produced evidence of a trend towards the over-medicalisation of pregnancy and the use of unnecessary interventions such as cesarean sections in high-income and lower-income countries with consequent hazards and costs “Although midwifery is already widely acknowledged as making a vital and cost-effective contribution to high-quality maternal and newborn care in many countries its potential social economic and health benefits are far from being realised on a global scale” said Professor Mary Renfrew of the Mother and Infant Research Unit School of Nursing and Midwifery at Dundee University Scotland Every year nearly 300000 women are thought to die during pregnancy childbirth or soon after Around 26 million women suffer stillbirths and 29 million infants die in the first month of life researchers said Millions more women and their families suffer long-term health financial and emotional problems simply because they have not received adequate health care before during or immediately after pregnancy New estimates produced for the Series suggest that in the countries with the highest burden of infant and maternal deaths over three quarters of stillbirths and maternal and newborn deaths could be prevented in the next 15 years if effective midwifery was available to all women Even if improvements in the coverage of midwifery services were much more modest the potential for saving lives is huge – if coverage of midwifery services increased from current levels by just a quarter the authors estimate that the current rate of maternal deaths could be halved by 2030 While most maternal and child deaths occur in low-income and middle-income countries the Series also says that overmedicalisation of pregnancy is increasingly threatening the health and wellbeing of women and their families in both high-income and lower-income countries The Series authors argue that routine use of unnecessary interventions including cesarean sections limited mobility in labour and episiotomy can have a lasting effect on mothers’ and infants’ health and wellbeing “Both under-use and overuse of medical interventions in pregnancy contribute to short- and long-term illness for an estimated 20 million childbearing women” said Professor Caroline Homer of the Faculty of Health at the University of Technology Sydney For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Shaina NC | Published: February 9 2016 12:02 am The BMC study revealed that 58 per cent of community toilets in slums have no electricity Related News Living in a slum in Bandra West close to the railway station Vijaya wakes up every morning to anxiety over the trek she and her daughter must take into the open carrying water cans to answer nature’s call They could use the community toilet nearby but it’s in terrible shape and it’s simply easier to head into the open despite the daily trauma Open defecation poses a serious threat to the health of children in India and is the main reason why India reports the highest diarrhoeal deaths among children under five Additionally in women it is linked to other health problems such as urinary tract infections kidney and bladder malfunctions due to prolonged retention periods According to the latest UNICEF report open defecation puts at risk the dignity of women in India and they are constrained to relieve themselves only under the cover of dark for reasons of privacy This reality is faced by over 20 per cent of Mumbai’s residents — alarming because according to Census 2011 over nine million people live in the slums of Mumbai According to a six-month intensive study on slum toilets in Mumbai by Payal Tiwari of the Observer Research Foundation (ORF) defecating in the open is a compulsion not a choice “If we had proper toilets in our home or close by would I allow my daughter to risk her life to go in the open” questions Vijaya The fact endorsed by a recent study by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is that toilets in slums are in a deplorable state The BMC study revealed that 58 per cent of communitytoilets in slums have no electricity 78 per cent have no water or proper sewerage connection Countless such toilets many constructed by the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA) or the BMC don’t have doors latches or proper ventilation My own interactions with slum residents led me to discover more reasons why they prefer to defecate in the open The slum toilets that I entered have been filthy Apart from the unbearable stench there are cockroaches lizards rats and even maggots around the toilet complexes In many places women squat with the doors ajar for ventilation Further the men’s and women’s sections are often not segregated properly leading to safety issues for women One slum resident pointed out to me that it’s easier for her to defecate in the open than to wait in the painfully long queues There are fewer toilet seats for women than for men There is also the recurring problem of used sanitary pads strewn around or stuffed down toilets or in the toilet windows blocking ventilation Why cannot women who use them dispose of them properly This is something residents can control Children almost always defecate in the open According to Tiwari “Children are often shooed away from toilet queues because they take too much time Also it is easier for children to squat anywhere” Open defecation as a practice is inculcated in children when they are young making the act acceptable to them This is an outcome of the lack of infrastructure and the lack of motivation to put an end to the practice According to the ORF report at the Jai Santoshi Mata Nagar slum in Sahargaon Andheri East there’s only a handful of toilets for the thousands of slum residents These toilets are in such despicable condition that residents prefer to defecate along both sides of the road either early in the morning or after dark using umbrellas to cover themselves In the Ambujwadi slum in Malvani there’s not a single toilet so residents have no choice but to defecate in the forested area nearby An area has been designated as the community toilet and men’s and women’s sections identified But it’s the women who suffer the most protecting their dignity from Peeping Toms with cameras The women speak of men with their pants down making lewd gestures at them In the monsoon the area becomes slushy leading to accidents especially among the elderly women In one incident a girl was abducted when she went to defecate Another time a woman was saved by her alert mother-in-law before she could be dragged away by men Women here also have to keep a lookout for wild pigs Disturbingly to avoid going to the jungle some women especially pregnant women use a designated sari to defecate in There’s a wide gap between demand and supply Did you know that in Mumbai currently there’s only one toilet seat per 1800 women and that there’s a shortfall of over 65000 public toilet seats As I see it the root of the problem lies in the lack of willingness to address public issues A comprehensive and uniform policy for the maintenance and construction of public toilets is what we need Hollow election-time promises will only compound the problems for women Prashant Patil deputy municipal commissioner says pay-and-use toilets are better because they are maintained better The reality however is that all toilets in slums are overused under-cleaned and insufficient for the population Vijaya points out that the public toilet close to her home was constructed by a local politician years ago The politician gave them locks to keep the toilet complex safe but the latches were soon broken by those who came from the railway station nearby to use the toilet Now the drains are perpetually choked “In the monsoon the gutters right outside our homes overflow and the stench is unbearable” says Vijaya She brings things into perspective She points out that politicians only repair or construct toilets when it’s election time Soon after elections the people are forgotten From the recommendations in the ORF report and my own investigation I believe sanitation in Mumbai’s slums is a top priority Building a minimum of 100000 new toilet seats before the end of 2016 is a must These toilets must be useable connected to the sewerage system and electrified I recommended that new legislation be brought in to make the UN-endorsed right to safe water and sanitation a fundamental right of every Indian citizen I propose the creation of a single empowered and apex-level Mumbai sanitation and cleanliness authority under the BMC that does away with multiple agencies I also propose looking into bio-toilets This is really the need of the hour and I cannot stress enough the
