Influences of Health Facility Type for Delivery and Experience of Cesarean Section on Maternal and Newborn Postnatal Care between Birth and Facility Discharge in Malawi.

AbstractBACKGROUND: A number of studies in the past have looked at determinants of postnatal care. However, many of them do not distinguish between postnatal care (PNC) before discharge and after discharge for women delivering at health facilities. Conceptually and practically, factors associated with PNC before discharge and after discharge should be different. This study examines key factors for maternal and newborn PNC before discharge.
