Experimental: Mama kits intervention
Health facilities randomized to this arm provided mama kits - packages of childcare materials including a cloth ("chitenge"), baby blanket, and diaper - to all mothers who delivered at these facilities between June 1, 2013 - Aug 31, 2013.
Other: Mama kit
A low-cost non-monetary incentive (mama kit) was provided to all women who delivered at the facility between June 1, 2013 - Aug 31, 2013. Women were told about the intervention during ANC, and safe motherhood groups in the community promoted the intervention in the catchment areas of the treatment facilities.
No Intervention: No intervention
Health facilities randomized to this arm provided obstetric services as normal.
- Facility delivery ratios [ Time Frame: At delivery, up to 10 months after the first antenatal care visit date ]Administrative data were used to measure the outcome.
