This month’s issue of BJM features a variety of topics, including two articles exploring gender in midwifery care, the final article in the interprofessional series and an examination of how the perception of ‘normalcy’ after childbirth can affect how women handle post-birth morbidities.
Our research section includes an article that explores the impact of post-birth counselling on contraceptive use and a feminist-pragmatist exploration of post-birth morbidities. We also have a literature review that examines the use of gender-neutral language in maternity settings. This month’s professional article rounds off the interprofessional series, summarising the lessons learned and future considerations in interprofessional education after the pandemic.
We also have a clinical article, that provides a critical assessment of recommendations for trans and non-binary inclusion in maternity services, and two comment pieces that reflect on a newly qualified midwife’s experiences of a preceptorship year, and a student midwife’s experiences of providing care for a woman during a breech birth.
