    Good move by "WHO" but if it is build and we don’t have qualified midwives in our state hospital,or will we continue with those pretending to be midwives but in really scense they should be trandition birth attendance(TBAs)who should work in the community.i was shock recentilly by the death of mother, due to poor management during labour and death of children during delivery.
