It’s me again, Dr. Khadijah Folake Sanni-Tijani but you can call me Doctor KT for short. I’m a medical doctor, women’s health advocate, writer and author of NATURE’S SUPERFOOD – A COMPILATION OF TIPS FOR SUCCESSFUL BREASTFEEDING.
Within a decade of medical practice in Nigeria and Saudi Arabia, I have noticed a huge gap in health literacy among pregnant women and nursing mothers. This level of ignorance contributes to the primary delay in seeking medical care, which often results in complications and sometimes, mortality.
According to the World Health Organization, the current Maternal Mortality Ratio of Nigeria stands at 814 per 100,000 live births. The lifetime risk of a Nigerian woman dying during pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum or post-abortion is 1 in 22, in contrast to the lifetime risk in developed countries estimated at 1 in 4900.
We can meet the first target of the third Sustainable Development Goals (ie. reduce MMR to less than 70 per 100000 by 2030) if we empower women with the knowledge, support and resources that they need to stay healthy throughout the journey of motherhood. This is the reason why I have written a book that women can read to become well-informed and equipped with adequate knowledge at every stage of the journey.
I’d like to present another masterpiece in my women’s health series:
WHOLESOME MOTHERHOOD – A SIMPLIFIED GUIDE TO SAFE PREGNANCY, CHILDBIRTH AND PUERPERIUM.
Wholesome Motherhood is a concise handbook covering all essential aspects of preconception, antenatal, and postnatal care. The book provides simple yet, explicit guidance for women who are new to the journey of motherhood and veterans who need a refresher course.
This book answers all the questions you would have asked your obstetrician or midwife at the clinic or during ward rounds!
The official presentation comes up on 21st March, 2021 at 4:00pm WAT.
