The Indian government’s decade old policy incentivizing deliveries at hospitals has highlighted a supply gap of obstetricians and gynecologists. The presence of only one obstetrician/gynecologist for 10,000 pregnant women put immense pressure on the medical system, and has also resulted in the suffering of women and children. To bridge this gap in access to skilled birthing care, Dr. Prakasamma has created a new profession of “nurse gynecologists.”
