This article is from Health Care for Women International, volume 35.AbstractThis article presents findings from a study on womens delivery care-seeking in two regions of Guinea. We explored exposure to interventions promoting birth preparedness and complication readiness among women with recent live births and stillbirths. Using multivariate regression models, we identified factors associated with womens knowledge and practices related to birth preparedness, as well as their use of health facilities during childbirth. We found that womens knowledge about preparations for any birth normal or complicated was positively associated with increased preparation for birth, which itself was associated with institutional delivery. Knowledge about complication readiness, obstetric risks, and danger signs was not associated with birth preparation or with institutional delivery. The study findings highlight the importance of focusing on preparation for all births—and not simply obstetric emergencies—in interventions aimed at increasing womens use of skilled maternity care.
