Postnatal care is one of the recommended interventions to reduce the maternal and newborn deaths during postpartum period. 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. Therefore, Providing Postnatal Care (PNC) to recently delivered mothers is quite essential during this period.
A Postnatal Care journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting new research. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Postnatal CareJournals contain articles that peer reviewed, in an attempt to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
