Special advicer to the Minister of Health, Dr. Baffour Awuah says that part of the solution to the high maternal mortality rate in Ghana, lies with midwives abiding by their ethics and code of conduct.

Addressing executives of the National Association of Registered Midwives, at its third quarter national meeting in Accra, Dr. Baffour Awuah who is also a former Medical Director of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi, said if the country’s midwives live by the tenets and practice of their profession, the high maternal mortality figures will be halved.

Dr. Awuah noted that midwives are taught to save lives and must no matter the situation, ensure that pregnant women do not die in delivery. But regrettably, however, some midwives rather prioritise ‘parochial considerations’ endangering the lives of pregnant women. This, he noted, should be seriously done away with.

The National President of the Midwives Association of Ghana (NARM), Madam Ridwana Amoako-Agyei said the Association has fought a good fight to be where it is today.

She said midwives now have the chance to further their education because of NARM. She asked members to remain resolute to fend off ‘infiltrations’ by rival groups such as the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association.

Secretary-General of the TUC, Dr. Anthony Yaw Baah, entreated the Midwives Association of Ghana to bury their differences with the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association, in the interest of pregnant women and patients.

He commended them for conducting themselves well, so far in their tango with the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association
