  1. Church-based obstetric care in a Yoruba community, Nigeria.

    Article - En anglais

    The analysis of data from available delivery registers in a Yoruba community, Nigeria suggests that about a half of recorded births between 1983 and 1990 were delivered in « faith clinics » and not in a maternity centre.

    This paper reports on the mode of operation of these faith clinics in the town.

    It was observed that the faith clinics were under the control of mission-trained midwives all of whom claimed divine call as the reason for taking up the job.
