Figure 8 CM Health Facility Deliveries by Age Groups, 2006 vs. 2013

Maternity risk profiles Using the national referral guidelines, maternity risk profiles have been created that divide pregnant women into 3 groups4: 1. Primary birth: woman with no condition mentioned in the referral guidelines. 2. At risk birth: woman with a condition that recommends a consultation. 3. High risk birth: woman with a condition that recommends transfer. Data limitations: 1. It may be that the care is transferred but the self-employed LMCs can still be involved, or remain recorded. The re-coding occurs at the point of admission for labour, so transfer of care once labour starts is not shown. 2. Self-employed LMCs and CM Health-employed midwives are not captured correctly in the dataset, so the comparison of these two groups will only be for the 2010-2013 period.
