These staggering statistics of infant and maternal mortality forms the basis for the new weekly reality show on pregnancy and childbirth, NyinsÉ›n Ne AwoÍ», on Adom 106.3 FM.
NyinsÉ›n Ne AwoÍ» follows a first-time pregnant woman on her daily journey to becoming a mother.
The show captures her daily experiences and the changes that come with pregnancy.
NyinsÉ›n Ne AwoÍ» is aimed at providing supplementary health tips and specialist perspectives for the benefit of expectant mothers and other listeners, who otherwise may not be able to access pre-natal and post-natal health care.
Beyond first time pregnant women, the show also seeks to educate women who have been pregnant before, as every pregnancy comes with its own experiences.
