New mothers in Scotland are being asked to compare their experiences of childbirth to those of their counterparts in Ghana as part of a new Oxfam campaign to improve maternal health care across the developing world.
Despite recent advances in the Ghanian public health system the death rate amongst new born babies in 2009 was still 27 per 1000 live births.  The equivalent figure in Scotland is just 2.8.
