In the rural areas of Uttarakhand, women of all ages play a pivotal role, and have a varied and demanding chores to perform. The major duties undertaken by them are directly associated with the accessibility to common property resources and the quality of natural resources (Chhaya Awasthi 2009). To the women of the Uttarakhand land (Jameen), forest (Jungle) and water (Jal) are the three very essential priorities to fulfill their daily family needs. While these issues are quickly and solidly essential from the perspective of the necessities of society, economy and the family, and her very own day by day work, women have different requirements which are imperceptible and not perceived even by them. In the countryside a portion of the customary practices is as yet proceeding.
In spite of the fact that training, rising financial measures and social mindfulness has diminished them to some extent, however, numerous women who deliver babies are still exposed to separation in unfortunate conditions, and deprived of healthful nourishment and different comforts because of deceptions.
