The same are also needed when a neonate is sick and needs urgent and priority treatment for conditions like infection, pneumonia, etc.

Diet under Janani Shishu Suraksha Yojna

The first 48 hrs after delivery are vital for detecting any complications and its immediate management. Care of the mother and baby (including immunization) are essential immediately after delivery and at least up to 48 hrs. During this period, mother is guided for initiating breast feeding and advised for extra calories, fluids and adequate rest which are needed for the well being of the baby and herself. Non availability of diet at the health facilities demotivates the delivered mothers from staying at the health facilities and most of the mothers prefer returning home immediately after delivery. This hampers adequate care of the pregnant women and neonates, which is important for quality PNC services.

Free Blood Provision in JSSK Scheme

Blood transfusion may be required to tackle emergencies and complication of deliveries such as management of severe anaemia, PPH and C sections, etc. The provision of blood will be free of any cost and without any user charges, however, the relatives and attendants accompanying the pregnant women should be encouraged to donate blood for replacement.

Exemption from User Charges

User charges are levied by many State Governments for OPD, admissions, diagnostic tests, blood etc. These add up to the out of pocket expenses. On occasion, there are situations where these pregnant women are misguided and become vulnerable for exploitation by private diagnostic centres for unnecessary investigations.

  1. Transport from home to the health facility
  2. Referral to the higher facility in case of need
