The nurse working in the Maternity Ward of Rumbek State Hospital Peter Dor Meen encourages expectant mothers to deliver at recognized health facilities because giving birth at home is risky.
 
He egrets that mothers are delayed at home when giving birth.
 
“Our data has increased from one hundred and forty deliveries to one hundred and ninety this month of September. We’re also looking forward to deliver more. So we encourage all the mothers outside to deliver at the hospital. We discourage home delivery. One of the challenges we face in this hospital is delaying of mothers who are delivering from home and they’re brought when they are very tired. They are not able to push. That is whereby, we have distress. There are cases whereby mothers come when they are very tired, the baby is already tied in the abdomen and the mother is very tired and is not able to push”, says Dor.
 
Dor advises women to always attend antenatal clinic to seek for medical attention before complication in delivery.
 
He warns people of Rumbek and South Sudan at large against treatment outside a hospital as it may cause problem to the expectant mothers and the baby.
 
“Mothers who have known that they are pregnant must come to antenatal care. The reason is to screen the expectant mother to know whether she is at high risk or she will be able to deliver safely. Never treat malaria from small clinics because you that your pregnant. If you try to treat from outside, your baby’s chance of survival is very low. So I encourage all the expectant mothers to come for antennal care in the hospital when you fall sick and they are sick so that we screen you and all services then we shall be able to know”, the health worker advises.
 
The health worker was speaking to Good News Radio on Wednesday in Rumbek State Hospital.
