Interventions/Control_1 The intervention was formulated using behavioral science approaches for promoting health savings towards the costs of maternal health care among pregnant women and their partners. The intervention consists of a basic mobile money health savings account offered by clinicPesa and additional behavioral designs to encourage savings for maternal health costs. In the intervention group, participants receive the standard clinicPesa offering in addition to behavioral designs that encourage saving. The intervention group will also have fun designs that encourage savings, such as gold coin "rewards," an animated smiling baby character, and other designs to help them keep track of savings targets, such as reminder SMS messages that sound like they are from their child. In the control group, participants receive the standard clinicPesa offering (a mobile money savings account with interest and basic SMS reminders). Both groups will have access to a smartphone application that has a mobile money health savings account as offered by clinicPesa with the ability to deposit and withdraw health savings or set targets.
