REASONS  FOR MATERNAL MORTALITY

Too Many Deaths of Women and Their Babies Around Us!

Haemorrhage, Eclampsia, Obstructed Labour, Unsafe Abortion, Infection and Anaemia are regarded as major events that lead to maternal mortality. However, the real reasons for maternal mortality are the inappropriate response of childbirth attendants to complications of pregnancy and delivery, or failure of women with such complications to receive the help they need to be safe due to delays. The inappropriate response of childbirth attendants contributes to either worsening the complications that kill women or doing nothing to prevent or treat it.

Most women who are pregnant or in labour seek the help of someone or an institution usually a birth attendant, a childbirth care centre or a spiritual house or person. The book is also on a mission to guide all stakeholders on how best to respond appropriately to complications of childbirth that can take lives.

100% safe delivery of all pregnant women is achievable!
