Women delivering in a health facility should remain for observation for the first-24-hour period, and those who deliver at home need close observation as well, preferably by a Skilled Birth Attendant (SBA). The postnatal period is the time from delivery of baby till the first 42 days. Risks of maternal and newborn deaths are greatest during the first 24 to 48 hours after birth.
