Introduction: The World Health Organization Safe Childbirth Checklist is a supporting tool for safe delivery that is essential for maternal and perinatal care practices. It has to be well mentored with its accurate implications to the health care providers who attend the deliveries so that they can protect delivering mothers from major causes of maternal death such as haemorrhage, infection, obstructed labour, hypertensive disorders, intrapartum-related stillbirths, and neonatal deaths. Purpose: The purpose of the study is to determine the level of awareness about the Safe Childbirth Checklist and its accurate application among the health care providers who attend the childbirth delivery procedures. Methodology: This study is a qualitative study on knowledge and practises regarding the World Health Organization Safe Childbirth Checklist among obstetrics and gynaecology professionals. The secondary data is collected from the literature search from various electronic databases such as PubMed, Google scholar, and PubMed Central. Results: the study intellectualizes and advances the knowledge concerning the use of world health organization safe child birth checklist among nurses and other health care providers who are the attenders of child delivery procedures. Conclusion: The study brings out better awareness concerning knowledge and practise concerning the World Health Organization safe childbirth checklist that indicates safe practise concerning maternal and child safety. This suggests training programmes to enhance the quality of practise among staff nurses and other health providers among child birth professionals.
