If during your pregnancy you needed emergency obstrtic care where would you have gone?
Sometime problems develop with the pregnancy and women may have to seek outside help. Emergency obstetric care can include the administration of antibiotics, oxytocics, or anticonvulsants, the manual removal of the placenta, removal of retained products following miscarriage or abortion, assisted vaginal delivery with forceps or vacuum extractor as well as Caesarean section and blood transfusion required due to complications in labour. If the woman delivered by caesarian ask her at which type of facility she went to. Even if the women did not need any of the above assistance, this question is trying to establish where women would most typically seek help so it is important to probe for an answer.
