Having highligthed our BMC Pregnancy and Childbirth paper in my first blog , we would like to remind readers of our posts that we have several related papers on the media and health/midwifery.
This paper builds on a growing number of academic papers published by staff in the Centre for Midwifery, Maternal & Perinatal Health (CMMPH) on the role the media play in health and midwifery, both in the UK [2-3] and in Nepal [4-5]. We are pleased to say that there are more forthcoming in this field. Watch this space!
