PROVISION AND UTILIZATION OF MATERNAL HEALTH CARE SERVICES IN EMOHUA LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA OF RIVERS STATE

CHAPTER ONE

 Introduction 

Background to the Study

 The health of the mother determines to a large extent the health of her family. Ratzan, Filerman and Lesar (2000) noted that mothers are primary producers of health for their children. Park (2006) stated that a healthy mother brings forth a healthy baby with better chances of survival. United States Agency for International Development-USAID (2008) affirmed that a mother’s health profoundly affects the health and well being of her children. Davour, and Davour (2005) asserted that women’s ill-health impacts seriously on children and families, national productivity and household income and human life. They added that in children and family, women’s ill health can initiate a cycle of ill-health in the next generation. World Health Organization - WHO (1980) pointed out that with growing recognition of the importance of the health of women in the development process, it has become increasingly obvious that the high mortality of women in developing countries in their middle years is a cause for grave concern. WHO (1998) noted that pregnancy and childbirth are special events in women’s lives and in the lives of their families, and that this can be a time of great hope and joyful anticipation. The WHO further stated that it can also be a time of fear, suffering and even death. Public Health Programme - PHP (2004) added that maternal mortality not only affects the family involved but it also has a great effect on the society as a whole. Policy Project, Nigeria – PPN (2002) reported that Nigeria contributes ten per cent of the world’s maternal deaths with an average of seven for every 1, 000 births. They added that this indicator has a negative impact on child survival since children who lose their mothers experience an increased risk of death or other complications such as malnutrition. The tragedy is that these women die not from diseases but during the normal life enhancing process of procreation. Park (2006) declared that most maternal deaths are preventable. Lucas and Gilles (2006) pointed out that technologies for prevention of these deaths are available. The challenge, they added, is to achieve universal health care coverage. Childinfo.org (2007) stated that vast disparities persist in maternal health coverage between the industrialized and developing countries, rich and poor, urban and rural, educated and uneducated. They added that all women should have access to basic maternity care through a continuum of services offering quality antenatal care, clean and safe delivery and post partum care for mother and infant with a functioning referral system linking the whole. Child info.org further stated that the simple most critical intervention for safe motherhood is to ensure that women receive care during delivery by skilled health personnel-a doctor, nurse and midwife
