Author: JAMERA T. HAJIJUL
Date: April 2016

This study is a quasi-experimental design aimed to determine the effectiveness of birth plan with couple counselling versus birth plan alone on facility based delivery in two municipalities in Mindanao. There were 50 respondents for the experimental group (Bonifacio) and 51 respondents for the control group (Josefina). Total count was used in selecting the respondents. Birth Plan from “Mother and Child Book” of the DOH was used in the control group. For the experimental group, couple counselling during prenatal visits was added to birth plan. Using the Target Client List of the midwives and a questionnaire adapted fromMacapas, et al. in 2012, record of the deliveries and demographic data of respondents were noted respectively. A chi square was used as a statistic tool to analyze the data using SPSS 16.0. Results revealed that although there was an increase in the number of facility based deliveries and a decrease in home deliveriesin the experimental group (Bonifacio), birth plan with couple counselling during prenatal did not seem to have a significant effect in improving utilization of facility based deliveries. Birth plan as an intervention can stand alone and adding couple counselling to birth plan during prenatal do not significantly increase the utilization of facility based deliveries
