Tanzania Test
During pregnancy, women are more likely to get oral health problems. Oral health problems during pregnancy can affect the health of both the mother and the baby. Unfortunately, many women do not go to the dentist during pregnancy nor do they receive information about their oral health.  
The World Health Organization recommends that antenatal care providers, like midwives, could play a role in promoting oral health. In Tanzania, midwives are ideally placed as most women see a midwife during pregnancy.  
This brochure was developed to provide simple, oral health advice to Tanzanian women during pregnancy. It was designed so that midwives can use the brochure to provide oral health information to pregnant women.  
Attached Awareness Brochure is stage one of the MIOH Tanzania Program, Midwifery Initiated Oral Health.  
Please share this, it is in Swahili and English.
