Obstetric and Gynecology expert, Dr Olufunke Olamigoke has called for improved access to skilled birth attendance at birth, emergency obstetrics care, effective family planning and reproductive health services as the most cost effective strategy in tackling maternal mortality.

Olufunke who spoke at a media round table organized by Development Communications Network, said the lifetime risk of maternal death indicates that one in 30 women in Nigeria will have a death related to pregnancy or child bearing.
