Abstract: The realities of 2019/2020 exposed Nigeria and indeed the world to the poor management and planning in the public healthcare sector of each country. The outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has given a new meaning to the word make hays while the sun shines. Regrettably, Nigeria is one country that failed to plan and prepare for the 20th century healthcare challenges. The public health of any country aims to provide groups of people with the right to be healthy and live in conditions that support good health.

Health policies in Nigeria have undergone tremendous evolution in the past 60 years but without the desirable quality of healthcare delivery system in place to advance the health status of Nigerians. This study focused on women who had been pregnant and had given birth to at least one child in Nigeria. Hence, nulliparous women (women with zero births) were excluded. The study also confirms that mother child mortality is more prevalent amongst women who did not have formal education than women who had higher educational study. It is evident that women’s educational level can result in an increase in maternal awareness
