Family Planning And Women Empowerment

“Developing the senses in the right path definitely leads to

the balanced development of the child.”

 

Being a mother is the most beautiful feeling in the world, the pride and accomplishment of motherhood surpasses every other achievement in life. But motherhood is the most difficult task too as raising a child requires a lot of love, efforts and patience. A child is just like a piece of clay and the mother as a potter moulds the clay in to the desired shape. A mother's responsibility of raising the child in the right path starts soon after birth and continues life long where the mother acts as a friend and guide and help the child in every walk of life.  

 

Touch

 

Children often learn things more by touching and feeling than by seeing and hearing. The sense of touch is one of the senses which develop first. A child can make out the touch and feel of mother right from birth and immediately stops crying whenever mother holds the baby. 

My daughter too had developed the sense of touch early and would stop crying whoever I took her in my arms and cuddled. While playing I touched her cuddled her often as it is said that touching and cuddling make the children feel loved even from a very tender age. Slowly she started recognising the touch of her Papa as well. 

 

Sight

 

The sense of sight is one of the least developed senses at the time of birth but develops rapidly soon after.

Infants are short sighted and can see only up to twenty five to thirty centimeters. So, whenever I cuddled my baby, I held her close enough to see she could see me and recognize my face more than the feel of touch. 

By five to six months my daughter had started showing fondness for certain toys, I would keep those toys away and she would just try to grab them, making a perfect hand eye coordination, important for the development of sense of sight.   

Peek a boo was her favorite game at eight nine months, when I was out of sight, she was would just look for me here and there and the moment she saw me a broad smile appeared on her face. This game does develop a stronger sense of sight.

Going out, seeing different objects and pointing by their names again and again does work wonders. I used to take my daughter out for a walk every evening pointing and naming whatever things we saw on the way and it definitely helped her recognize a lot of objects and animals. The moment she saw a car she would say car and when I asked her 'where is doggy' she would quickly point out at the doggy on the road.

Family planning:

                      The practice of controlling the number of children one has and the intervals between their births, particularly by means of contraception or voluntary sterilization. Family planning has lots of methods like using pills, copper T, finally sterilization.

 

Purposes of family planning:

                     Family planning / contraception reduce the need for abortion, especially unsafe abortion. Family planning reinforces people's rights to determine the number and spacing of their children. Benefits of family planning are it is arguably one of the most important public health advancements in the last century, and it is defined as a woman's ability to decide if and when to have children.

 

Pros and cons of family planning:

                 The main advantage of natural family planning is that it does not involve the use of chemicals or hormones and therefore does not have any side effects.

                  Common side effects were irregular bleeding no period, headaches, nausea / dizziness and weight gain/loss. These side effects occurred mainly among pill and injection users. The occurrence of side effects had a negative impact on continuation rates.

 

Women Empowerment:

                  Women's empowerment is the process in which women elaborate and recreate what it is that they can be, do, and accomplish in a circumstance that they previously were denied. Women’s empowerment in India is heavily dependent on many different variables that include geographical location (urban/rural), educational status, social status (caste and class), and age. successful women in India in women’s empowerment are all mothers. Women who can take care of her family well can also take care of society. Once there was a time where women should stay in the home and take care of family, kids cook foods and should been concern about each and every member of the family. Her dreams were shattered by saying that, “you’re a girl, you can’t and shouldn’t do this”. She has to fight for her rights each and every time. At last she broke down the barricades that was before her through a weapon called education which made her shine in every fields. Now women are present in all fields. Though decades have passed women have to prove her in each and every place that she is capable of doing everything.

 

                  In today’s society most of the women are working women’s. Because they want to give their children’s a good education and also a sophisticated life. Women’s who are all working faces lots if issues in both places.

Maternal health and future health of the baby:

                      Maternal health refers to the health of women during pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period.  Women’s who are all pregnant also go for work and they undergo lots of stress and burden in their life. This stress will surely affect the health of the baby. Babies development need a peaceful and free of mind environment. Mothers emotions whether it is happiness, sorrow ,stress, anger all affect the development of baby. Mostly women’s take care of others more than themselves. This is not good for their health and also the baby in the womb. Indirect cause of the health of the baby is anemia. Healthy women can deliver a healthy baby.

               Many factors can affect pregnancy and childbirth, including: Preconception health status, Age, Access to appropriate preconception, prenatal, and interconception health care,Poverty.  Pregnancy can provide an opportunity to identify existing health risks in women and to prevent future health problems for women and their children. These health risks may include: Hypertension and heart disease. ... Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) .Women who are pregnant should aim to exercise for at least 150 minutes per week, including muscle strengthening exercises. Obesity is the major problem for all diseases during pregnancy. Obesity is an extremely strong risk factor for gestational diabetes. The risk of maternal and infant mortality and pregnancy-related complications can be reduced by increasing access to quality preconception (before pregnancy), prenatal (during pregnancy), and interconception (between pregnancies) care. Moreover, healthy birth outcomes and early identification and treatment of developmental delays and disabilities and other health conditions among infants can prevent death or disability and enable children to reach their full potential.


Conclusion:

               Working women’s are mostly middle class women’s. After their delivery, family planning the health of the mother is affected. She experiences a lots of drawbacks in her health after her maternity. She sacrifices her health for the improvement of family, kids and everyone. She have no time to think about herself and her health condition. She lives for the family and only thinks about their needs. When she is pregnant she thinks about the baby in the womb.
