According to the World Health Organization, Nigeria is the country where 20% of all global maternal deaths happen and also the largest country in Africa.
The high number of maternal deaths in Nigeria, especially in the rural communities is due to unequal access to health services.
A safe birth kit with essential items will protect the life of mothers and babies during childbirth from infection.
According to the convener Abiodun Alabi; “Motherhood Nigeria Initiative launched Project safe birth to reach out to pregnant women in underserved communities with the focus to educate and provide free safe birth kits include such as sterile blade, sterile gloves, antiseptic soap, antiseptic disinfection, cord clamp, mucus extractor, maternity pad and methylated spirit. These basic items have a huge impact in preventing or responding to complications during childbirth.”
Meanwhile, the group has called on members of the public to support its course to enable them to reach out to more pregnant women in Ogun state and Lagos state.
In a statement, the organisation stated that a safe birth kit costs N3000 and that well-meaning Nigerians can donate to sponsor a pregnant woman or more because no woman deserves to die while giving birth.
