drawing on evidence presented in the 2014 Lancet Series on Midwifery and a research
prioritization study conducted with the World Health Organization. The results
indicated that future research investment in maternal and newborn health
should be on “right care,” which is quality care that is tailored to individuals, weighs
benefits and harms, is person-centered, works across the whole continuum of care,
advances equity, and is informed by evidence, including cost-effectiveness.
Birth Becomes Her, a birth photography blog and community, held a contest featuring real images focusing on aspects of early motherhood. The prompt invited photographers around the world to submit images they took in 2017 for the categories of labor, birth, postpartum, breastfeeding and maternity.
