Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana
In India, women do not get the nutritious food they need. If the mother herself suffers from hunger, she gives birth to a child with a weak body. In the womb of malnourished pregnant women, the developing baby does not receive the required nutrition from the mother, resulting in impaired future physical development of the child. And so the baby weighs less even at birth.
Due to poverty and economic hardship of the family, many women have to work till the time of delivery. The body becomes weak, the baby does not get enough milk for nutrition, so there is a lot of weakness in both himself and the baby.
As a solution to this, the Government of India has launched the Pradhan Mantri Matru Vandana Yojana in accordance with the National Food Security Act of 2016, which will be implemented in all the districts of the country, with concern for the health of pregnant women as well as newborns.
