Four Months Pregnant Nurse In Surat Has Been Attending To Covid Patients While Observing A Fast For Ramadan
It is often said that in the face of problems and adversity, people are always ‘stronger together’. Just like in times like these, when the rising death toll due to Covid has all of us down and panicked, one can only hope that we emotionally stay together even while physically distancing so that we have a fighting chance to survive this second wave. Especially because we have strong women in our midst who aren’t shying away from their duty as a nurse and fighting at the frontlines as inspiration. We are talking about several pregnant women, who have emerged as heroes and shown immense strength in times of crisis.
One such woman being Nancy Ayeza Mistry, a nurse from Surat who spends her days attending the COVID-19 patients despite being four months pregnant. And if that wasn’t all, turns out, she does all of this while also keeping a fast in the ongoing holy month of Ramadan. Nancy has left most of in awe. Her shift lasts upto eight to ten hours, where Nancy spends every minute catering to the health of covid patients admitted at the Atal COVID-19 center at the Althan Community Hall situated in Surat. She’s simply doing her duty as a nurse, she says.

When asked about how it feels to be fighting the coronavirus as a nurse, while being pregnant and on a fast, Nancy replied, “I am doing my duty as a nurse. I consider serving people as a prayer.”
Nancy had also participated in helping covid patients out last year when the country was hit by the first wave. However this time, accompanying her was her 4 month old child in her womb. She also said, “I have a child in my womb, but my duty is important to me. By the grace of God, I have the opportunity to serve the patients in the holy month of Ramadan.”
Netizens have commended her for such great spirit during such bleak times. Guess, we all have something we can learn from her!
