The purpose of this module is to obtain information on the health of the mother and newborn child. The module asks about the mother's health and health care received during pregnancy and during labour and delivery. We also ask about the weight of the child at the time of birth.
In the first two months after your last birth, did you receive a vitamin A dose like this?

IF MORE THAN ONE TYPE OF CAPSULE OR DISPENSER IS IN USE, INTERVIEWERS SHOULD BE GIVEN A SAMPLE OF EACH TYPE. THE RECOMMENDED DOSE FOR POST-PARTUM WOMEN IS 200,000 IU.
Vitamin A given to nursing mothers is transferred to her infant and can improve the health status of both mother and child. Show the vitamin A capsule (or method of dispensing) given to nursing mothers. Circle the appropriate code for her response.
