  • [Title] Infants delivered in maternity homes run by traditional birth attendants in urban Nigeria: a community-based study.
  • We explored factors associated with traditional maternity/herbal homes (TMHs) run by traditional birth attendants (TBAs) compared with hospital or home delivery in Lagos, Nigeria, and found that infants delivered at TMHs were less likely to have severe hyperbilirubinemia compared with infants delivered in hospitals or residential homes.
  • These infants were also less likely to be preterm compared with those delivered in hospitals or undernourished compared with infants delivered in residential homes.
  • We concluded that infants delivered at TMHs who survive are unlikely to be at greater risks of some adverse perinatal outcomes than those delivered in hospitals or family homes.
