    Default Birth stories from around the globe.

    I thought this was a really interesting article. Reminds me of how incredibly lucky we are in this country to have safe, clean places to give birth with medical help and support. I am totally in awe of women who give birth in war zones, in places with no midwives or doctors and no medical attention when they need it.

    What a fascinating article - thanks for sharing. I feel so lucky to be pregnant in Australia.

    I am going to look up the save the children charity. How shameful that so many babies die for such simple reasons as not having a sterile Cord Clamp

    One of my midwives has helped to achieve amazing things in a birth centre in a Nairobi slum - www.fremobirthcentre.com. Just goes to show what can be achieved when someone is passionate and committed.

    I loved this article! The couple of tiny blunders the hospital made during my labour and c-section seem like nothing in comparison to what some of these women go through.

    Great article, made me cry for the mothers that lost their babies. I'm scared about giving birth to my first,l. I can't imagine how some of them in such poor conditions would have felt..
