This article presents a comprehensive description of the four kinds of rituals that are performed on pregnant women among the Bakweri of South-western Cameroon. These pregnancy rituals are performed to avert abortions, premature deliveries, still births, and to ensure safe delivery. They are also intended to keep the pregnant woman healthy during her gestation period.
The four rituals are performed by four separate nganga traditional doctors. The implication here is that the pregnant woman moves from one herbalist to the other as her pregnancy progresses and need for each ritual arises.
Of equal significance in this article is the consideration of the incantations that are chanted by each nganga and which complement each of the rituals as verbal art. The incantations that accompany the rituals demonstrate the inter-relationship between ritual, performance, and orature.
This relationship between performance and the spoken word demonstrates that African oral performance, at least in this instance of pregnancy rituals, does not exist in isolation, but is subordinated to and is an organic consequence of ritual performance.
The indications are that Bakweri traditional doctors perform pregnancy rituals and incantations as part of Bakweri traditional religious and social obligations to supplicate the ancestors to guide and protect the expectant mother and to protect the baby when it is born.
