Birthspacing, a major cure or intervention initiative to prevent and protect women from premature death and disability in developing countries like Nigeria. And it is further understood within the Nigerian entity that the advantages and benefits of birthspacing is not evenly distributed. Ninety-nine percent of pregnancy related deaths occurs in developing countries and of course, only women are more vulnerable. It is found that pregnancy intervals of less than six months are associated with one hundred and fifty percent risk of maternal death, as well as related maternal health complications such as elevated risk of third trimester bleeding. Underlying the medical cause of maternal death disability and all forms of reproductive ill- health in women, in general, are a range of social, economic and cultural factors which include inadequate education, low social status and lack of income and employment opportunity and poor access to reproductive health services. But with the present issues of globalization, the role of women is gradually being redefined, modern roles are emerging which ensure that more women are holding to consumer purchasing power.
