Midwifery During Crisis

I wanted to share two recent newscasts with you.

The first is a PBS segment on the need for midwifery post earthquake in Haiti. It can be viewed at the PBS website here: http://www.pbs.org/now/shows/605/index.html

The second is a BBC documentary on the efforts to reduce maternal mortality in Afghanistan. It can be viewed at the BBC News website here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/newsnight/8326102.stm

The following two tabs change content below.
Jennifer Vanderlaan CNM MPH is the author of the BirthingNaturally.net website. She has been working with expectant families since 2000, training doulas, childbirth educators, and midwives.
