According to the World Health Organization, maternal health services (MHS) include antenatal care, perinatal care, and postnatal care. MHS have been underutilized in Nepal and are contributing to an increased morbidity and mortality in the region leading to various adverse outcomes for both mothers and their newborns. Many of these adverse outcomes can be avoided with increased use of antenatal, perinatal, and postnatal checkups.
