Awareness and Use of Who Safe Childbirth Checklist Among Midwives Working in Health Institutions in Imo State


In a resource-constrained setting like Imo State, Nigeria, there are still significant health challenges to overcome. Despite efforts to improve maternal health outcomes, preventable maternal deaths continue to occur due to many gaps in healthcare delivery systems. This highlights the critical importance of maternal and newborn health as indicators of a nation’s health care system. Adopting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) was a responded to this priority. The Safe Childbirth Checklist (SCC) was developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) to improve the standard of maternal care and lower the rate of maternal mortality. However, little is known about how well-known or used the SCC is among the midwives in Imo state’s chosen healthcare facilities. To ensure the success of this research, data was collected from both primary and secondary sources. For the quantitative data, a well-structured questionnaire was issued to midwives employed by certain health facilities in Imo state. The study utilized a descriptive survey design and surveyed 145 midwives as a sample. The midwives were selected using a random sampling method. The data was analyzed using descriptive statistics in the form of tables, charts, and percentages. The study’s findings add to the existing body of knowledge and provide valuable insights into the awareness and utilization of the WHO SCC among midwives in the Imo State. This, in turn, sheds light on potential areas for improvement in maternal delivery.
