Thanks Bridgette and Ladys Ortiz,

Thanks for your quick responses. I have now created the postnatal care variable by combining m62 and m66. I have got a bit closer finding with the EDHS report, but not exactly the same. While the EDHS has reported a sample of 4308 for those women who gave birth in the last 2 years, I have found 4489 samples after doing (drop if v222>=25).
I am also not sure which variable cab be used for postnatal timing. I am presuming that m71 is for the newborns although it does have only few observations. I am observing a total of 632 women with a information for "time after delivery postnatal check took place". Would you assist please.

Here is the code I am intending to use for postnatal care services
gen pnc=.
replace pnc=0 if m62_1==0|m66_1==0
replace pnc=1 if m62_1==1|m66_1==1
lab var pnc "pnc services"
lab def pnc 0 "no PNC" 1 "Yes PNC"
lab val pnc pnc
ta pnc [iw=wt]
