ProvidingContinuity of Care during Antenatal Period for High-Risk Pregnancy


Inthe 21stcentury, it’s ironic seeing women anguishing during pregnancy.Every woman across the globe deserve quality maternity care that isconsistently reliable with a top class available research on safetyas well as effectualness and the one that assists the normal ornatural protocol of pregnancy and birth. However, in many occasionswomen don’t have access to such care (Campbell&amp Klocke, 2001). As a result, this paper seeks to come up with a care and policy formedical, conditions which are more commonly seen in pregnancy.

Ourpolicy is: it’s compulsory for all pregnant women to undergoprenatal care at no cost. The rationale and aim of this policy is toprovide access of quality maternal care to all women, keep the healthof pregnant and new-born hale and hearty as well as preventingunnecessary deaths.

Forso many years, going through prenatal care have been options. For themost part, prenatal care offers services such as testing forpregnancy complications and pain relief choices in labor amongothers. However, only few women have been going through prenataleducation classes, yet a big number of women have complicated orexperiencing high-risk pregnancy. Ironically, a typical woman needsjust few hours of interaction with a midwife or a doctor during herentire pregnancy.

Thegovernment must be willing to implement this policy by paying theprenatal care services to all women, which isn’t a big deal for anywholehearted government. This will save the life of mothers as wellas their child, and by doing this, it will have protected the futuregeneration.
