Husband calls on compatriots to support pregnant women

May 13, 2015 By Regina Pratt

An antenatal registration exercise organized by the Aberdeen Women Center and supported by UNFPA to register pregnant women within the Western Area, has received a massive boost after a man who accompanied his pregnant wife to register pledged his full for the exercise.

Victor Moriba, who leaves at Kaningo, Lumley, called on his compatriots to support pregnant women to attend antenatal clinics.

Speaking to Concord Times last Friday during the registration of pregnant women in the Western Area at the Aberdeen Women’s Centre, Moriba enthused that the exercise was good news for safe delivery and family planning.

He urged other men to give their pregnant spouses full support when they are attending the clinic, noting that the Aberdeen Women’s Centre is one of the safest places for delivery, not least during the Ebola outbreak in the country.

Ms. Hawa Kargbo, a resident of the Aberdeen community, said she wholeheartedly supports the views of Mr. Moriba that the men should lend support to their spouses during pregnancy and delivery.

She called on pregnant women to regularly attend antenatal and postnatal clinics for safe delivery.
