Project Example

Pregnancy, Labor and Delivery Job Aids

The Mothers and Infants: Safe, Healthy Alive (MAISHA) project in Tanzania was aimed at various aspects of safe motherhood.

The project had as its goal that all pregnant women should:

  • Go for ANC as soon as they miss a period/know they conceived
  • Attend ANC (4 times)
  • Be aware of the services they need and ask for them
  • Develop individual birth plans
  • Save for childbirth and obstetric emergencies
  • Be aware of danger signs in pregnancy
  • Go to the health facility if they have any danger signs
  • Give birth at a health facility supervised by a qualified provider

These job aids were intended for use to remind service providers of the warning signs before, during and after labor.
