Background: An estimated 289,000 women die each year from complications in pregnancy or childbirth with over half of these deaths occurring in sub-Saharan Africa. Millennium Development Goal 5, to improve maternal health, includes a target to reduce the maternal mortality ratio by three quarters by 2017. The identification and initial management of high-risk mother during the postnatal period totally depend on the knowledge and practices of these ground-level workers; otherwise, they will remain unnotified and unreported. Objective: The main objective of the study was to determine the effect of demonstration on practices of auxiliary nurse midwives (ANMs) identification and management of high-risk mothers for secondary postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) during the postnatal period. Materials and Methods: Quasi-experimental design was adopted to implement live demonstration on 40 ANMs. The sample was selected by convenience sampling technique. Checklist was used to assess the practices of ANM identification and management of high-risk mothers for secondary PPH during the postnatal period. Results: Average practices score in pretest was 73 which increased to 138.8 in posttest. T-value for this test was 36.7 with 13° of freedom. Corresponding P value was small (<0.05), null hypothesis is rejected. It is evident that the live demonstration is significantly effective in improving the practices of ANMs regarding the identification and management of high-risk mothers during the postnatal period for PPH in the experimental group. Conclusion: It is evident that the live demonstration is significantly effective in improving the practices of ANMs regarding the identification and management of high-risk mothers during the postnatal period for PPH in the experimental group.
