Did you see anyone for antenatal care for this pregnancy? If yes: Whom did you see? Anyone else?
Probe for the type of person seen and circle all answers given.
Antenatal care check-ups help to detect problems associated with pregnancy and delivery. All pregnant women should have routine check-ups. This question refers to any antenatal care received during the pregnancy - a check specifically for the pregnancy and not for other reasons. This is a three-part question. First, ask if she saw anyone for antenatal care for this pregnancy. Then, if the woman answers 'Yes', you must ask whom she saw for the check-up. Finally, ask if she saw more than one person and record all persons seen. If you are unsure how to code a person mentioned, write the words used to describe the person in the space provided 'Other' and circle 'X'. If she saw no one for antenatal checks, circle 'Y' and skip to MN7. Doctors, nurses, midwives and auxiliary nurse midwives are skilled health personnel who have midwifery skills to manage normal deliveries and diagnose or refer obstetric complications. 'Traditional birth attendants' may be trained or untrained. If the woman gives the name of a health facility, ask her to tell you who she saw there.
