At a time when the entire nation is witnessing the Supreme Court directions in restricting timings for fireworks, LifeCell on its part aims to give a new dimension for this as a social responsibility. The emotional messaging created by LifeCell is focused towards caring for the unborn baby and the pregnant women and urges people to restrict use of fireworks and avoid loud noise and air pollution to safeguard them.

The baby's womb is not completely insulated against external noise or sound. As the baby grows, after 23 to 33 weeks, the baby will be able to hear high-pitch sound such as even a car alarm. For instance, by playing music the baby may even response by moving around in the womb. For the unborn baby, hearing is the one sense that helps him to prepare for life after birth.

While prolonged noise exposure may be linked to fetal hearing loss, its effects aren't well-known. However, if the pregnant mother is exposed to a noisy environment for a lot of time, it is suggested to stay away from such environment to be safe.              

V. Ravi Shankar, Chief Brand & Communication Officer said, "Considering the emotional state of the to-be-mother during pregnancy, it is important that we make them feel comfortable and not expose them to anything that can harm her or to-be-born baby. It is not easy to ignore how a to-be-born baby would feel with loud noise. Social messaging focussed on them, we believe, could create some impact in minds of people."  

Court orders and appeals from many voluntary organizations & NGOs are doing their best to reduce air & noise pollution for the benefit of public in general. LifeCell believes that taking an emotive route focussing on the safety and wellbeing of pregnant women and unborn baby could at some level make people consider avoiding loud & polluting fireworks.

Mayur Abhaya, Managing Director, LifeCell said, "Our company's core being care for the mother & baby, we feel it is our responsibility to ensure their care & safety even beyond our business. While Diwali is a festive season for all we need to keep it safe for women and children most importantly the pregnant women and her baby and hence this initiative at a small level."
