Table 2 Post delivery dischargea Factors associated with stays of greater than 24 h among women who experienced a normal, full-term deliveryband had no complications during birth (N = 907). Only predictors that were significant (p < 0.05) in either bivariate analysis or the full modelc were included in the final model

  2. bExcludes Cesarean, suction and pre-term births
  3. cNot shown in the table, the full model controlled for ethnicity, religion, occupation of household head, relationship to household head, age at first pregnancy, marital status, maternal occupation, wealth, source of trust for pregnancy-related questions, knowing a CHW, problems during ANC and number of ANC visits
  4. dIn each bivariate analysis: place of delivery (n = 907), education (n = 894), age (n = 906), parity (n = 904)
  5. eWhen analyzed as a binary coefficient (none versus any), education is significant in the multiple regression (p = 0.01)
