Midwifery and nursing
Every year, an estimated 139 million babies are born. 289 000 women will die during pregnancy, childbirth, or shortly after, 2•6 million will have stillbirths, and 2•9 million children will die in the first month of life, according to estimates. A major factor is the lack of high-quality maternal and newborn care. Midwifery is a type of advanced nursing practice that focuses on assisting women during pregnancy and after delivery. In many countries, midwifery is already widely recognised as an important and cost-effective contributor to high-quality maternity and infant care.
