Spacer FebruaryArticle3 #4BetterHealth: Voices from the Field

Only half of pregnant women worldwide access the four antenatal visits recommended by the World Health Organization to improve the survival and health of mothers and babies.

"One reason I would see in why women present very late [in their pregnancy] is their economic status. The community we serve here is lower income and so a pregnant woman may listen to advice from neighbours which can discourage them...Then there are those who believe that since they feel fine, they will wait as long as possible before coming in." -- Rahab Njoki, m2m Mentor Mother Team Leader from Nairobi, Kenya
