The maternal mortality rate of Nigeria is 814 (per 100,000 live birth in Nigeria) and the lifetime risk of a Nigerian woman dying during pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum or post abortion is 1 in 22, in contrast to the lifetime risk in developed countries estimated at 1 in 4,900". This is according to WHO.
So, I worked on nutritional status of antenatal women for my undergraduate research project and now I want to do more. I believe that "A healthy mother breeds a healthy nation".
On a Monday, 4th October 2021, at Roni Primary Health Centre, Roni LGA, Jigawa State. "Health Mothers, Healthy Babies" is the focus.
The Maternal Health and Nutrition Conference was lit! There has been lots of positive feedback from these women and the hospital's management.
Truly, you can't imagine how your little advice, counsel, encouragement, time, love and resources shared with others can help to strengthen their feet until you take that bold step to make ia positive impact wherever you find yourself. Initially ,I was faced with the major challenge of communicating in the native language of the community to give my lecture (which is Hausa Language). But thank God I was able to get someone to translate while I gave the lecture in English Language.
Thanks to the management of Roni Primary Health Centre for this rare opportunity, their support and cooperation.
Thanks to worldpulse sisterhood for the true show of love, support and encouragement to do more and share our story
