Annual Natality

 

Place of Delivery

 


Since 2008, the City Health Office has continuously upgraded its health facilities by providing adequate equipment and training of personnel to handle normal deliveries. As shown in the table there is already a significant decrease of deliveries at home and an increase of deliveries in the health facility.

 

Attendants at Birth

 

 

With the improvement and upgrading of the different health centers to cater to birth deliveries in the community, there is an increase of deliveries handled by the midwives. The increase of deliveries in the health facility may also be attributed to the health advocacy being conducted during pre-natal consultation and the issuance of office memorandum on deliveries handled by hilots.
