Abstract

Providing adequate health care services to both mother and the infant is detrimental for their survival and wellbeing. Antenatal care (ANC) is an essential component which can in reducing the health risks for mothers as well as their babies. During the first 24 hours after delivery a large proportion of maternal and neonatal deaths take place. Performing delivery at a health care facility centre under the supervision of medical attendants and in hygienic conditions not only reduces the risk of complications but also lessens the chances of infections during labour and delivery. This article on the basis of NFHS-4 data tries to present information on the ANC providers, the frequency of ANC visits and several other components of maternal health care. This article also endeavours to examine the NFHS-4 data on the birth of the child and the post-natal care. An attempt has also been made to provide information on the place of delivery, type of delivery, medical assistance during delivery, cost of delivery, out-of-pocket expenditures and postnatal health care check-ups for mothers as well as newborns.

Key Words

Maternal health, newborns, NFHS-4, antenatal care and institutional delivery.
