Maternal Mortality remains a key issue affecting women of reproductive age across the African Region with Kenya reporting 355 deaths per 100,000 live births. These maternal deaths result from complications occurring during pregnancy, before birth, during birth and after birth.

Factors that contribute to maternal mortality in sub–Saharan Africa are:

Poor health-seeking behaviour
Long distances to health facilities
Lack of transport to tertiary facilities
Additional contributing factors include delayed decision to seek maternal care due to failure to recognize danger signs and lack of readiness. Antenatal care is essential in raising awareness about healthy practices and danger signs that signal potentially life-threatening complications.
