Maternal Deaths are just sad I don’t have another way to word it, to me maternal deaths are events not a disease. Maternal death happening during childbirth and there is usually loss of child and mother or the mother it is a tragedy to the family, locals and the country which effect the countries numbers on the life expectancy. Nigeria is one of the developing countries where health and education is hard to find with the surrounding beginning unsanitary. Maternal death are usually happened more in the villages are not that unsanitary and there are no promises that the person delivering has done any sanitary practice. Culture in Nigeria is that babies are born I the home and only one – third are attended by a doctor, nurses or midwives. Socially the delivery personal are people live in their neighborhood and they are not a health care provider or trained us one. Politically they don’t get support from the government or there are not any laws regarding the event of event or about the education/training of that person doing the delivery should have before doing anything to the mother or fetus. About 58% of the women get Iron supplement and 39% of them received drugs to prevent the malaria which an epidemic in Nigeria. NGO’s like WHO (World Health Organization), World Bank and Unicef are some of the many few who provide money and health care providers to the sufferings. WHO and other and other organization put these matter on spotlight for the world to see. Anthropological approach was applied and the research done towards is much observed. Statics use to describe it only from the villages and small towns no that the numbers would change drastically in the city. They descried how it was before after changes and how the medical practices of delivering a baby is different precedent culturally throughout the years and how well are the pregnant women beginning taken care of by the social and government.
