 Background to the study 
 Health has been given a wide interpretation because it covers everything from mental and social wellbeing of an individual to his physical soundness, adequate spiritual state, adequate occupation and environment. The widely accepted definition is that of WHO, defined as a state of complete physical, mental & social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity (WHO, 1948). Health in itself is of great value as it enables people to enjoy their potential as human beings. Therefore, it is important to protect health through healthcare services (WHO, 2009). Health care refers to the prevention, treatment and management of illness and preservation of mental and physical well-being through the services offered by medical, nursing and allied health professions (WHO, 2010) as well as care received in the family nexus. This study focuses on the health care seeking behaviour of women during pregnancy and delivery. Uzochukwu and Onwujekwe, (2004) viewed health care seeking behaviour as activities undertaken by individuals who perceive they have a health problem or are ill for the purpose of finding an appropriate remedy. It also focuses on specific steps taken in response to illness and what is done and why (Gotsadze, Bennett, Ranson and Gzirishvili, 2005). Maternal health care is defined as the promotive, preventive, curative and rehabilitative health care for mothers during pregnancy, childbirth and 42 days after childbirth (Park, 2002). Childbirth is one of the important events affecting the health of a woman, especially in developing countries like Nigeria (Raj, 2005). In many Nigerian communities, utilization of maternal health services is often influenced by factors like traditional health seeking behaviour, access and attitude of the health care providers (Garba, Hellanden, Ajayi, Suleyman and Oluwabamide, 2011).This results in seeking maternal health services from traditional healers, traditional birth attendants and unskilled family members with resultant consequences such as maternal and child morbidity and mortality. Maternal mortality is an important indicator of maternal health and wellbeing in any country (Ogujuyigbe & Liasu, 2007). Consequently, the reduction of maternal mortality level is a key Millennium Development Goal, and efforts to improve women’s health in the country have been undertaken by local, national and international organizations (Palto, 2008).
