Maternal health is an important phase in the health of women during pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period. In recognition of health as a human right, United Nations (UN) member countries vowed to reduce, by three-quarters, the 1990 maternal mortality ratio by 2015. To achieve this, countries implemented evidence-based maternal health interventions, with global impetus to focus on increasing the number of facility births, antenatal care and trained skilled birth attendants at birth.
