You’ve probably heard lots of different statistics bandied about when people talk about birth. It can be really, really hard to sort throug it all and understand what it really means for birthing women. I’ve had the chance to hear Gene Declercq speak in person, and I really appreciated his ability to make complicated statistics accessible. He’s helped put together a fantastic web site for those who are interested in understanding maternal-child health on a large scale. The video below is fairly long, but well worth the time. So grab a snack, put your feet up, and spend the next 25 minutes learning!
