Imagine: neither you nor your neighbours have a radio or television. You have only a basic level of education. Your livelihood is dependent on the rice and cassava that your husband farms on his modest plot of land. If rain is minimal during the cultivation season, then crop production will be poor. If your harvest is insufficient, it is likely that your family members will frequently experience going to bed hungry. Your level 1 ID Poor Identification Card signifies that your household is at the lowest strata of poverty. Additionally, the day is nearing that you will go into labour, and until recently, you believed that your sole option was to give birth traditionally at home without a skilled attendant, rather than at a quality healthcare centre.
