Whether they are in developed or developing nations, all women are susceptible to dying from complications in childbirth. While some of these complications are unavoidable, many develop during pregnancy and can be prevented or caught and treated. These difficulties are often a result of inaccessibility to care, inadequate health services, poor prenatal screening, and uninformed mothers, among others, that in many cases are a consequence of the mother’s geographical location and economic status. This title explores new techniques, tools, and solutions that can be used globally to support women during pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum, regardless of wealth or location. Topics include maternal care models, breastfeeding, and social media and internet health forums. For world health organizations, obstetricians, midwives, lactation consultants, doctors, nurses, hospital staff, directors, counselors, therapists, academicians, and researchers interested in the latest practices.
