Women and Birth in 2023

In her lecture for International Women’s Day Mary Nolan looked at key aspects of women’s experience of birth across the globe in 2023.

She asked:
What is women’s experience of giving birth like?
Is giving birth safer than it was at the start of the millennium?
Would more caesarean sections make birth safer?
Is helping women to breastfeed still important?
