Figure 7 CM Health Facility Deliveries by Ethnicity Groups for Year 2012 and 2013

Age profile of mothers The age profile of pregnant women changed slightly between 2006 and 2013 (Figure 8). Whilst the proportion of CM Health facility deliveries for women and girls aged under 20 fell during this period, the decrease was marginal with the exception of 2013, when deliveries reduced by 18% (132) from 2012. Similarly, the proportion of pregnant women aged 40 years and over during the 2006 to 2013 year period did not change, although there was a slight decrease in 2013. On average, 60% of pregnant women in CM Health are managed by self-employed LMCs. However, 60% of women aged 40 years or over are cared for by CM Health-employed midwives at registration. This variation is due to the greater likelihood of complications in pregnancies among older women, resulting in greater demand on CM Health staff services.
