What is it about?

Our study in eastern Indonesia found factors influencing safe childbirth. More antenatal care, wealth, positive attitudes, and education increased safe delivery and skilled birth attendants. This helps make childbirth safer for all, especially those with fewer resources.

Why is it important?

Our study focuses on the often-overlooked region of eastern Indonesia, shedding light on the determinants of safe childbirth. This timely research contributes to the global goal of reducing maternal mortality. By identifying key factors, we can tailor interventions to make childbirth safer for women in this region, potentially saving lives and improving maternal health outcomes.


I find this study incredibly rewarding as it delves into the crucial issue of maternal health, particularly in the often marginalized region of eastern Indonesia. By uncovering the factors that influence safe delivery, we hope to contribute to tangible improvements in maternal healthcare and ultimately reduce maternal mortality. It's my belief that addressing these determinants can have a direct impact on the lives of women and families in this region, and I'm excited about the potential positive changes that can result from this research.
