Abstract-Alternative: The purpose of this study was to compare the experiences of pregnant women in Ghana and Japan with the ultimate goal of exploring ways to improve maternal and child care.We interviewed 28 pregnant women in three Maternity Homes and in one hospital in Japan and obtained their informed consent to participate in the study.Following collection of this data, discussions were held with midwives who are owners of maternity homes, practitioners, and researchers.The data was gathered from May through July in 1999.The mean age of the pregnant women interviewed was 30 years, and their ages ranged from 17 to 43 years.There were 10 primipara and 18 multipara.The study compared three aspects of the pregnant women's experiences in Ghana and Japan:issues related to the individual, environment, and institution.We found that pregnant women were motivated in their self-care by the interventions of midwives, which were not only directed toward solving their medical problems, but also toward encouraging adaptation to motherhood.Our results suggested that midwives have significant responsibility in promoting good maternal and child health in these two countries.
