Q. What can women do to reduce their risk of giving birth prematurely?

A. The months leading up to pregnancy may be just as important as the pregnancy itself in taking steps to reduce the risk of a preterm delivery. Up to 50 percent of pregnancies are not planned, so that can make it challenging for women to begin reducing their risk factors for a preterm birth prior to pregnancy.

One important step all women can take before becoming pregnant is establishing a solid relationship with a gynecology provider, who can help identify risks and make suggestions to address those concerns or make referrals as needed for specialized care.

An accident that kills 20 passengers in the country hits the headlines instantly and  remains in the  news for days.

Yet nearly an equal number of women die in childbirth every day but do not receive as much attention, medical experts note.

Worse still, this happens when the healthcare system is working at optimum level.

A confidential Ministry of Health report derived from the District Health Information Systems (DHIS2) shows that 857 women died in childbirth in the first half of this year, up from 413 for the equivalent period last year.
