Abstract:
Antenatal care plays an important role in ensuring a healthy mother and baby during pregnancy and after delivery, maximizing good health outcomes like; low maternal and neonatal mortality, low postpartum anaemia, and appropriate birth weight (Awusi et al, 2009; WHO, 2005; and Adekanle et al, 2008). It should be noted that going for antenatal care service, mothers are given important information on danger signs during pregnancy, preventive and curative treatment, appropriate nutrition, breastfeeding, and contraceptive use. This is normally the time when the identification of pregnancy complications are made so as the appropriate referral or specialist case management is recommended (WHO, 2005).
