Description:Total Fertility Rates -- Family Planning in Kigoma: Contraceptive effectiveness and safety, Family planning counseling -- Recommendations
Recommendations: It is difficult for many women to deliver their babies in health facilities because facilities are often far away, and transportation is expensive. Transport voucher programs and community transport funds could reduce these barriers.
Many pregnant women attend only one antenatal care visit. Because the first antenatal care visit may be the woman’s only contact with the health system during her pregnancy, this first visit should educate her about important maternal health issues such as:
• The need to develop a birth plan
• Warning signs of pregnancy complications
• The health advantages of delivering in a facility
• The benefits and availability of family planning
