Abstract

A healthcare monitoring arrangement is essential for frequently monitoring a patient's health status. Specifically, maternal healthcare systems for tracking are utilized to evaluate the clinical status and monitor any abnormal condition changes during all three trimesters. This paper's objective is to conduct an extensive literature review and acknowledge earlier initiatives and studies conducted previously in maternal health care monitoring. This review focuses on accumulating information from earlier work and presents a general overview of previous studies concerning maternal health care monitoring (MHCM). The paper focuses on the maternal healthcare systems in developing countries accessed by pregnant women during the antenatal period. Furthermore, this paper highlights the challenges in the maternal health sector that include inadequate work conditions for health workers, home-based birth practices, long distances to healthcare facilities, and long waiting times in health facilities. The paper indicates the potential opportunities to strengthen maternal healthcare services and allow effective access to maternal healthcare facilities by pregnant women.
