Whilst the ongoing tough lockdown amid Coronavirus outbreak in India, mostly sick and pregnant women are been affected as they couldn’t get proper medical help when needed.

However, for new mother and pregnant women, police in Rajasthan have started a new WhatsApp group naming ‘Hello Mommies’ to help them out.

Several pregnant women across Udaipur have been added to the WhatsApp group, which was created by women cops and has a total strength of 150 members.

According to the details, the group also have several women connected to hospital and health services.

The idea of a special WhatsApp group for expecting mothers was suggested by additional superintendent of police Gopal Swaroop Mewar.

As per reports, the group was intended for the police to identify and help pregnant women in curfew-bound areas so that they don’t face any complications.

As per police, constables on checkpoint duty have instructed to identify such women in their areas who could need medical or any other form of assistance, even at dark night hours.

“We are feeding their numbers in the group so that they may reach us directly in case they require any kind of assistance during the curfew period”, police said.

With ongoing spike in Coronavirus cases, expecting mothers face a number of challenges with less medical aid and consultancy.

Even as medical facilities remained stretched due to high cases of COVID-19, several pregnant women including migrant workers or their wives are reportedly at risk due to the lockdown.

Last week, district administration officers in Jaipur helped out a pregnant woman who had been on her way to Madhya Pradesh on foot by providing her food and transport.
