Expectant mothers at risk


Syed Ovais Akhtar

My wife and I were blessed with a baby last month. Usually this transition of becoming parents is supposed to be blissful but unfortunately for me and my wife it was terrible. We had to face a real difficult time due to lack of medicines in market. Oxytocin and Methylergometrine Maleate are two important medicines that are essential to control maternal deaths on account of childbirth complications.
Imagine the trauma my wife had to endure during this critical time. I tried my best to get these medicines from any place that I could find but I was told that these medications have been discontinued and are not available anymore. I request the manufacturers to take note of this and please make the necessary drugs available as many lives are at stake.
