Two-child China promises better maternity services

China will offer more maternity beds and train more professionals to meet the growing demand for maternity resources, the health authority announced Tuesday.

According to a teleconference hosted by the National Health and Family Planning Commission (NHFPC), China will have 89,000 more beds as well as 140,000 more obstetricians and midwives by 2020.

Since the two-child policy was implemented at the beginning of the year, the country has been facing growing challenges in the quantity and quality of its maternal and child health resources, said Ma Xiaowei, deputy head of the NHFPC.

The NHFPC also called for better pre- and post-natal services and more emergency centers for maternal and pediatric treatment.
