Iqra Aziz wants people to stop judging mothers who have C-section births

Actor Iqra Aziz took to social media to share her thoughts on an issue that isn’t publicly talked about too often — the judgment many mothers receive when they deliver their child via a Caesarean section as opposed to a natural delivery.

The Suno Chanda actor shared her husband Yasir Hussain’s Instagram story about appreciating women who’ve delivered through C-section and added her own thoughts on the matter. “I probably wouldn’t have had the confidence to tell the world how Kabir was born because of our maashra [society] being judgemental (I admit I was one of them at some point),” she said, after which she addressed Hussain. “But my love, by (sharing this post) you have made me feel loved and appreciated. Love you for always giving me the confidence.

“Shout out to all the ladies who went through a major surgery to bring their child safely into this world,” continued Aziz. She went on to direct the reader’s attention to her husband’s post in case the reader is a mother who’s had a C-section.

In Pakistan, there is strong prejudice against Caesarean sections. They are often considered as ‘easy births’, a prejudice which translates into judgement against the mother who has them. Mothers who’ve had Caesarean deliveries are often looked down upon and we’re glad Aziz, and Hussain, brought up this oft ignored societal issue to light by bravely sharing her own experience.

Aziz and Hussain became parents to little Kabir Hussain in 2021. Aziz often shares about her experiences as a new mother on social media. In November, she posted a vlog showing a day in her life as a new mother, highlighting the struggles and joys motherhood brought to her life.

“Sometimes things get way too difficult, it’s tiring and upsetting and this is motherhood.” The actor said in the vlog, alluding to moments when everything crashes down and you need to find your way up. “There are emotions and lots of other things but it’s most certainly not easy,” said a teary eyed Aziz, who then assured herself that she will be “alright in a short while.”

Reaction followed the Sindh interim government’s approval of the students’ grace marks as a three-person inquiry team charged with examining anomalies in the results found widespread violations.

In order to ensure that justice was served in this case, college leaders opposed the decision to award the students grace marks and insisted on another examination.

It should be mentioned that the report of the committee appointed by the interim chief minister of Sindh disclosed that there was “tampering” with the results of English, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. For the incident, eight members of the Karachi Intermediate Board were found accountable.

Dr. Saeedudin, Naseem Memon, and other former chairmen were accused of manipulating the results of the Karachi inter examinations, and the Sindh government wrote a petition to the anti-corruption agency requesting that prosecutions be filed against those involved.

Pneumonia outbreak: 10 further kid fatalities in 24 hours are reported from Punjab

Published

Ten more children in Punjab, the largest province, have died from pneumonia in the last 24 hours, continuing the alarming trend of paediatric pneumonia deaths.

In the same time frame, the Punjab Health Department reported an astounding 427 new instances of pneumonia in the province, with 149 of those cases occurring in Lahore alone.

According to the most recent data, Punjab has had 20,872 recorded instances of pneumonia this year, with 319 fatalities overall. During the same period, 4,050 cases and 58 fatalities had been reported in Lahore.

Medical professionals have issued a warning, blaming the increase in pneumonia cases mostly on Punjab’s dangerous smog, which is made worse by the city’s high levels of air pollution in the winter.

Immunisation protocols

In response to the dire circumstances, Punjab’s interim health minister, Dr. Jamal Nasir, mandated children’s inoculation against pneumonia on January 11.

Dr. Nasir emphasised that all government hospitals in the province offer free pneumonia diagnostic and treatment services.

Signs and reasons

He emphasised the frequent signs of pneumonia, which include fever, coughing up blood, colds, and trouble breathing.

Precautions against pneumonia were emphasised, including making sure kids wore warm garments and minimising their exposure to the cold. Children’s pneumonia has been linked to a number of conditions, including immune system weakness, extended exposure to cold, pollution, malnourishment, and not nursing.

Even in moderate cases, pneumonia can seriously endanger life. Phlegm and cough, fever, chills, excessive perspiration, shortness of breath during everyday activities, chest discomfort when coughing or breathing, exhaustion, appetite loss, nausea, and headaches are some of the symptoms. Age and medical factors might have an impact on how severe the symptoms are.

Actions and therapies

Chest X-rays are used by physicians to get precise information about the lungs in the early stages.

Patients with viral illnesses are administered antiviral medicines. Dr. Nasir advised everyone to get medical help as soon as any symptoms appear.
