Attend Antenatal On Time To Avoid Adverse Problems –  Pregnant Women Advised

Pregnant women are advised to follow the directives of midwives on their next visitation to health facilities for healthcare to avoid maternal complications that may affect the pregnancy and subsequently lead to maternal mortality in the country.

Speaking in an interview with Madam Kyeraa Gifty on a program dubbed You And Your Health on Gye Nyame Fm chaired By Kwaku Mensah Abrampa, the staff Midwife of the Sampa government hospital in the Jaman North District of the Bono region indicated that most pregnant women within the district sometimes fail to honor the midwives invitation to antenatal care on time with frivolous excuses when she said sometimes affect quality health delivery.

She stressed that most pregnant women avoid the antenatal care with excuses of traveling which she said pregnant women are allowed to travel but must ensure they make themselves available for healthcare at any health facility they get to with their maternal and Child health records book to help them get themselves on track to avoid the potential problem that may arise as a result of the pregnancy and non-adherence to antenatal care.

Madam Agnes Bosuo , who is also a midwife at Sampa Government Hospital stressed that pregnant women must be more concerned about issues on their health by reporting immediately any signs and symptoms that may emerge as a result of the pregnancy to the nearest hospital for treatment to circumvent maternal complications during childbirth.
