This month, the BJM has several articles that explore how factors such as ethnicity and religion can impact midwifery care. Our research section includes an exploration of how ethnicity impacts assessments for midwifery students, and an analysis of the effect of recitations from the Holy Quran on postpartum depression. Additionally, our professional article explores how risk assessments based on ethnicity may present issues in the maternity setting.
This issue also includes a literature review of perinatal outcomes for persistent occiput posterior fetal position, and two comment articles. The first examines what the second UK conviction for female genital mutilation means in maternity care. The second explores nausea and vomiting in pregnancy.
