If u met a person who offered to give u his own life , for no reason just to see u happy . What would u give him / her in return . If that person say he / she wants nothing , what will ur impression be .
  All around the world million of women are risking their life for the sake of their babies .
The un announced pains of labour that many women suffer from might lead to death . Every woman knows how much pain she must endure to give birth to a new baby child and all most all of them forget about it as they see the little eyes of their kids .
When I first get pregnant , I used to call my cousin who was experiencing her first pregency just like me . We used to share health advices , nutrition tips , useful excerises and our feelings of fear .
    She used to warn me saying " that after birth my immune system will drop down and I should take care of my self " she asserted her words saying " old ladies say after birth ur grave is opened for 40 days , u might die so take care "
We both passed our difficult moments of labour and passed the 40 days after birth period . Because , we live in a country that offered us free health services , thanks Allah .
    However , in many poor , isolated and war zones many women are still seeing labour as a near death experience a risk that might losing their lives or their babies , which makes me feel sad for such a news
     Let's salute all women everywhere and calm their pains with our prayers
Mother love is really a true love

It is not about giving advice to women, but that our rights (work, being a mother, health, study, freedom, etc) are legitimized.
Personally, I do not care as much about a man's opinion as my rights are the same as them.

It is really a so very good and important topic for all of us, for both genders around the globe! I think, who we are here we also can be more careful and caring after reading this blog and all the comments we put here. What I do usually, I always try to tell women near me to be more caring themselves when they are pregnant, if I get their husbands and other family members I like to tell them to take care more of them though usually who are educated and not poor take proper care. In my country we are trying our level best to reduce maternal mortality ratio. 

Dear NOTACLUE, I appreciate as you mentioned we should not try to find out other's fault, it is true and I do agree, but sometimes we just can not...lol

Hello Rosemary:

It's an important, sensitive and in some way... a sad topic.
Fortunately, in my country, the motherhood is protected by law. But I also think about those women who live in other poorest countries. Most of them, leave their country trying to find a better future for their babies and themselves.
I really dislike many things about our society and its rules about, e.g immigration ... how could be a human being "illegal-being"!... So stupid!

In so many ways, the State ignores our natural rights and only protect a few who has enough power. The Motherhood should be important, a priority... Nowadays, it seems is more important if you have a particular belief, if you are a man, or if you were born in a particular country (with imaginary borders) than if you need healthcare, protection, etc.

At least in Chile, despite the fact that we women have been claiming some of our natural rights, we continue fighting collectively, not only for ourselves but also for mothers, non-mothers, workers, students, housewives and so on.
I know, in most of the cases the mother' love is the biggest kind of love, but during pregnancy or after the birth period, it should not be a risk for the women ... there is nothing romantic or idealistic to me, about how a woman suffers unnecessarily.

Thanks, Rosemary.

  :) at least u have done  something Estanis  :)

Comment by Estanis on July 25, 2018 at 14:26

Yes Rose... I did my best to encourage the mother but it was almost the other way around.

Comment by Rosemary :) on July 25, 2018 at 14:03

  Hi there Estanis :)  thanks for ur wonderful comment  here  . I just wonder  if u did attend a birth of one of ur kids ? 

Comment by Estanis on July 25, 2018 at 13:57

Good job Rosemary! Really nice.

As a man and a father I'd add that men knows the real strength and learn to value the spirit of a woman when they become a father. All we know it but not all we show it up whatever the reasons are.
If possible, I'd recommend to future fathers to attend his son/daughter's birth and see it with their own eyes. Amazing experience (if he doesn't faint).

   My dear friend  NotAClue  :)   ,  " maternal mortality  " is the right word to express  the topic of my blog  . Thanks for ur comment   .  " the 40 days opened grave " is a local expression  for the risk mothers  face during labour and I have borrowed  it to be a title  of my blog . Good  health  care prevents  maternal mortality    . Nevertheless  , it can happen  anywhere . I have faced  the risk of dying  due to bleeding  while giving birth  to my boy  . I have survived  because  of good health services  

Comment by NotAClue on July 25, 2018 at 13:14

Er... I guess this is my fault... This is a topic that gets under my skin, and then I can get REALLY upset... Anyhow, this issue is too important, and I don't want it get spoiled because of my outspoken personal dislikes, or any other reasons... 

Because with one thing I am with bet ... or, well... at least a tiny bit... No matter what kind of laws one has in one's country, everyone can make the worst or the best of it... and sadly, I can't find a difference to that attitude all over the world... 

They main reason why your answer, dara gino, bothers me so much is that Sudan and South Sudan are among the countries with the highest maternal mortality! Women in your country are up to 300 times more likely to die during labor, and in the following 42 days. 

Health center care strategies during birth period are of course the most vital point to fight maternal mortality in my view. But the reasons for women's death during this time varies throughout all countries. So, there are many more strategies applicable... but one should be informed what is happening in one's own country! And not pointing fingers at other countries problems. (in my opinion)
