ANTENATAL CARE FIRST TIME USER SMILES WIDER


Jackline K (30 years) is married with four children. She lives in Kagarama Village, Kagarama Parish, Kabingo Sub County – Isingiro District. According to Jackline antenatal care was never her “thing”, all her three children were delivered without any prior antenatal education, care or advice. She actually never thought it was important or necessary to attend antenatal let alone know that it is her right to get medical care and treatment until her fourth pregnancy when she attended a community maternal health rights meeting that was organized by a Maternal Health Promoter and VHT Parish Coordinator (Ms Nuwagira Roset) in her village (Kagarama).
