This ambulance would have a distinctive siren-like Khilkhilat, and Lodha continued, “Usually, we see newborn babies start crying by hearing the sound of an ambulance siren. Initially, we are planning to bring it to suburban Mumbai at five places and after seeing the response will decide to launch it completely.”
“These Khilkhilat ambulances will be designed by keeping in the minds little babies and the main motive behind this is to give happiness to the family and babies as it’s a special moment for the family to have a new baby as a new member in the family,” he concluded.

A safe return home is the goal of the Khilkhilat service, which is free for mothers and infants.

The Khilkhilat ambulances include a nutrition kit for the newborn kid, a schedule of vaccinations to be administered at particular intervals, and details about the government hospitals nearby.
