Bournemouth University papers to date on media and birth

Having highligthed our BMC Pregnancy and Childbirth paper in my first blog [1], we would like to remind readers of our posts that we have several related papers on the media and health/midwifery.

BMC cover media

 

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!
