85% Of Pregnant Women Not Regularly Visiting Health Centers In Sinoe

GREENVILLE, June 10 (LINA) – The focal person for health promotion of Sinoe County Health Team (CHT), Hosea Smith, has alarmed that there is an increase in the percentage of pregnant women in county who are reluctant to attend health centers for routine checkups, even in the later months of their pregnancies.

Smith said constant visits to health facilities by pregnant women can be a key tool in battling maternal and neonatal complications and deaths; adding that it was very important that women cooperate to avoid complications at the time of delivery.

He told a local 0broadcaster that, “85% of pregnant women in the county are not regularly visiting the hospital and clinics. They rather buy medicines from the roadside and we’re urging them to desist for their safety and that of their infants.”

According to him, the Ministry of Health has been instituting more preventative measures directed at reducing maternal and newborn deaths, and that it was equally the responsibility of patients and communities to step away from archaic and unsafe practices that tend to undermine the safety of life.

The health official said the CHT is enforcing vibrant Antenatal Care at the F. J. Grant Hospital in Greenville and clinics in parts of that political subdivision for pregnant women in its fight against maternal-related deaths and with the purpose of ensuring that no woman should die while giving life.

“The antenatal care is working well across the 32 healthcare facilities in the county. Thanks to our midwives. They are working hard in meeting quality care for pregnant women and newborns,” said Smith.
