Vatslya Divas, or Affection Day, is all about love and care. The program aims to identify malnourished pregnant women within the community, and has been providing nutrition, education, and a pre-pregnancy care service from the respective Anganwadi areas.
The Vatslya Divas program is celebrated every 4th month at all 79 Anganwadi centers. In order to provide a pregnancy care service to the women, it is necessary to register pregnant women as early as possible at the Anganwadi centers. The pregnant women and nursing mothers are gathered at the centers, and Shrimant Vidhi (Baby showers) are organised, together with the provision of necessary information regarding the benefits of the various government schemes.
