Women in Fiji's rural sector are anxious about the costs imposed on maternal health services as of the first of January this year.
The cost of giving birth in hospital could be as much as one hundred Fiji dollars a day which does not include the price of regular check-ups or other ancilliary services.
Sharon Bhagwan-Rolls, executive director for FEMLINK says the burden of the new charges is beyond many rural families.
