The national Association Of Registered Midwives Ghana has called on government and the public to assist them with equipment at the various maternity wards in the clinics and hospitals in the country.

At this year's central regional delegates conference at Cape Coast to elect new regional executives for the central region,

The central regional president of the Association Mrs. Alberta Quofie said in central region most of the hospitals and clinics are lacking equipment at the maternity wards which makes their work very difficult for them. And even what they have are very weak. She called on leaders of central region like the chiefs and health service to come to their aid with immediate effect.

She also urge husbands to go to the hospital with their pregnant wives when they go on labour.

National President of the Association Mrs Mary Fosu added that it's very sad that most hospital and clinics don't have delivery beds and other logistics use in the maternity wards. 

According to her, most of the old midwives are being affected at their waist and some at their spinal cord.

So government must see to the challenge and fix it immediately.

Public Relations Officer, Mrs Rosetta Ntiwaa Boakye advices the traditional midwives to be more dynamic with the job because some of them waste much time for the delivery become more dangerous for the pregnant woman before they refer them to the hospital which is very bad to the life of the mother and the child.

She said there's a training being organized for the traditional midwives so they should take advantage of it so that they be more professional.

She also advised pregnant women to go for antenatal care during the pregnancy period to avoid any rush when it's time to deliver.
