Abstract:

Birth Preparedness and Complication Readiness (BP/CR) is a strategy for reducing maternal mortality. Two hundred and twenty pregnant women were assessed for their practice of BP/CR. Exactly 67.3% prepared for birth but 31.4% were knowledgeable of signs of complications. Midwives should promote complication readiness among pregnant women in antenatal clinics.
