On National Safe Motherhood Day, Vedanta Aluminium, India’s largest aluminium producer, held a series of maternal health, nutrition, and neonatal care awareness sessions for pregnant and lactating mothers in Jharsuguda. The sessions were held at a Nand Ghar in Brundamal village, which is a modernised anganwadi run by Vedanta that serves as a centre for women and child development, with a focus on pre-school education, nutrition and healthcare, and women’s skill development.

A team of Auxiliary Nurse Midwives (ANMs), Anganwadi workers, and doctors from Vedanta Aluminium’s mobile health units conducted essential checks for pregnancy-induced hypertension, gestational diabetes, and other pregnancy-related ailments as part of the programme. Furthermore, the women were given important information about the importance of supplementary feeding practises in addition to breastfeeding in order to promote proper development.
