giving birth in the pacific
Giving Birth in the Pacific
  • Ideal = Delivery in a health facility with skilled birth attendant
  • Most continue to deliver at home with Skilled birth attendant access improving
  • Intervention needs to be “at the right time”

>50% maternal & newborn deaths during the birth period (labour/delivery/postpartum)

Community based care

  • Delivery kits/hygiene/neonatal resuscitation/oral misoprostol
