As the world comes to terms with the novel Coronavirus, and its many insecurities around health & well-being, we bring to you some handy resources, answering questions about women's health and well-being in this context.
The first in the 3-part series, focusses on some Emergency information, especially for pregnant and nursing women. We share what the World Health Organization (WHO) wants you to know, and what more you need to prepare for in the Indian context, according to gynaecologists. What precautions do you need to take if you're pregnant, how to prepare for your due date, how to minimise risk to your child, and many more such questions are answered in this Resource.
This resource focusses on women's mental health, as the majority of people are currently homebound, significantly increasing the responsibility of women, and limiting their space. We are especially focussed on women stuck in abusive domestic situations, and isolated from avenues of help.
This Resource answers some burning questions about anxiety, lack of space, caring for the family and also oneself, and so much more.
As we try to come to terms with the lockdown and self-quarantining due to Covid-19, countless women have shared with us about the weight of domestic chores, and the challenges of maintaining a healthy & diverse kitchen for the family. We hear you, but we also feel that this is the time to reclaim the space of the kitchen. It's a not a 'menial' space, but the center of the family's health, nutrition and immunity. And it's most definitely not just a woman's job.
How might we use this time to overturn some of these notions and focus on our health? This resource tells you how to run a Lean Kitchen, how to talk to your family about dividing responsibility and also some easy, resourceful, customisable recipes.
