Maternal health is the health of women during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. It is an important aspect for the development of any country, in terms of increasing equity & reducing poverty. According to the World Health Organization, more than 810 women die every day from complications in pregnancy and childbirth. So each and every mother should have access to quality healthcare during their pregnancy and childbirth. The birth of a new child should be a time of celebration, but it’s extremely sad to know that for many women around the world it is a time of fright. Unani medicine is the world’s oldest recorded system of health care and is still into practiced today. It deals with the above issues in a systematic manner and has different types of therapeutic regimens that can offer a better solution to maternal health as well as child health problems. Many of these therapeutic regimens that offer a better solution to pregnancy-related problems are delineated in this review paper in brief.
