Body Mass Index (BMI) and Gynae camp was held here for mothers of students and teachers of Shemrock Foundation School here today. Around 50 mothers and female staff members of the school were examined in the camp, which was organised by Paras Bliss Hospital, Panchkula as a part of Mother’s Day celebrations.
The camp was organised to have a routine gynae and BMI check-up of mothers and also to make them aware about healthy living. Dr. Ravina Verma, Gynaecologist, Paras Bliss Hospital, said, “Motherhood is not a hobby and is challenging, hence women need to care more about their health. Maternal mortality is on greater side these days due to Improper diet, stress, work pressure, negligence during pregnancy, high Blood Pressure and sugar levels, because of which were are organising this camp to bring more awareness among women.”
Dt. Aashima Chopra, Dietitian with Paras Bliss Hospital, said, healthy women means healthy societies, and they often tend to neglect their health because of household work. Healthy diet is something very important, and the message behind holding this camp was not just to examine them but also make them aware on how to take care of their health.
Mrs. Chetan Bansal, School Principal, said, mother plays an important role in a family, and at Shemrock School, womanhood is respected and celebrated always. She added, since Mother’s Day is around the corner, the school this time decided to celebrate it in a different way by holding a camp for them where they got a chance to get themselves examined.
