Subarna Ghosh

Delivering a baby through a C-section without any medical emergency is a norm these days, still nobody raises any questions. Today we have a voice who is questioning this practice, reflecting the collective agony of so many women tricked in to undergoing unnecessary surgery. This is the voice of Subarna Ghosh, who has filed a petition through (which received 1.5 lakh signatures till date) to urge hospitals to declare the number of C-sections conducted. Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi has supported this petition urging the health ministry to make necessary policy changes to curb C-sections in the country.
