Earlier, while presenting the Mama & Pikin Kit to the Parents of the triplets Mr. & Mrs. Camillus Igwe, Dr. Isioma Okobah reaffirmed that the Mama & Pikin Kit was an initiative to encourage women to deliver their babies in the Hospitals, Clinic or Health Centers where there are professional attendants instead of taking the risk of giving birth at home which often times results in Infant and maternal mortality.
Dr. Okobah who is also the Chairman of the Delta State Primary Health Care Development Agency, disclosed that the gesture was in line with the Health For All Deltans policy in the SMART agenda of the Okowa led administration advising the young mother of the triplets to take up routine immunization for the children and family planning in order to remain healthy and better manage her family.
