BARRIERS AND SUPPORT TO IMPLEMENTATION Paliadelis et al, (2005), in their study outlined various barriers to family centered care. In his study, lack of understanding of the concept of family centered care, lack of guidelines and policies and hospital management misunderstanding the presence of family to mean less work for staff.

This in turn, in the long run, is expected to result in making the Philippine Maternal Health Care System more responsive to the needs of every Filipino. To BS Midwifery students, this could provide handful information on how they can better perform their duties and responsibilities as practicing professional midwives in the future, taking into consideration all possible factors that may serve as basis on determining their efficiency and effectiveness in the delivery of maternal services. To the researchers, this would serve as completion of their course requirement. In addition, it may also serve as benchmark for future researches which also aims to elevate the level of healthcare being offered in the Philippines that, in the long-run, may contribute in national progress.

Studies shows that education is associated with good maternal health (Sun et al, 2012; Jayachandrans and Lleras-Muney, 2009; Tooth, 2015; Onarheim, 2016) as supported by the study above that educated woman possess autonomy in making decision for her own health and well-being.
