Did you know that the state of Tamil Nadu passed an ordinance that all women delivering in a gov't institution are allowed one female companion in the labor and delivery room. Please use this info so you can be supported by an emotionally strong and physically capable person who can support you during your delivery in hospitals where husbands are not allowed.
