One of the issues I noticed while working with The Maternal Health Channel in Ghana, was many women would not go for their regular antenatal care (prenatal care). It’s important for these women to understand why it’s so critical to having a healthy pregnancy and how it can be used as a tool to determine if the woman is at risk for any possible complications. Going for regular check-ups can save a woman’s life and that of her newborn child. During these appointments a doctor or midwife advises the patient on how she should be managing herself during her pregnancy. The way a woman eats can greatly affect her. Also checking things like blood pressure is also very important in her care.
The one day free clinic is being run in partnership with the MultiTV Group. So the free antenatals will be held in Kokomlemle in the MultiTV carpark, where Joy FM/TV are located.
