The Reality of Pregnancy in Sub-Saharan Africa: Author Shares Truth About Pregnancy in a Region Where 1 in 16 Women Die from Complications
Date:12/10/2007

SYLVANIA, Ohio, Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Pregnancy: Typically, it is an event in a woman's life that calls for happiness. There is great joy in anticipating the arrival of a new baby into the world, and it is usually an uneventful experience, especially in the Western world. When problems do happen to arise, help is readily available.

Drawing upon his experiences with the subject on three continents - Africa, Europe and Asia - Dr. Ogbonna, brings maternal deaths in Sub-Saharan Africa to the front burner, sparing no detail. Written with the general public in mind, "Pregnancy" uses as little medical terminology as possible due to the importance of reaching a wide audience.

"For people in Sub-Saharan Africa, it is a book that is intended to rouse them from their protracted slumber to enable them to appreciate that there is a problem that needs urgent attention."

Dr. Ogbonna discusses the various causes of maternal deaths and possible solutions to the serious problem. He seeks not only to educate the women in the region about the reasons why many of them die in pregnancy and how to avoid such deaths, but also the region's elected leaders. The book acknowledges the efforts of charitable organizations around the world who have been actively involved in reducing
