The final issue of this year has a variety of research and professional articles covering a wide array of topics. The issue also includes a case study on mental health outcomes for women with bipolar effective disorder, and a comment from George Winter on the transgender debate and how it relates to midwifery care.
Our research section this month covers the impact of cultural beliefs on maternity care among Sundanese people, how fear of childbirth affects women in Australia, and an exploration of whether access to NHS tongue tie services in the UK is equitable for mothers and babies.
The professional articles include a look at the importance of reflexivity when considering data collection methods in qualitative midwifery research, and a midwife’s reflection on their person experiences of lactation and grief.
Our December issue also includes a Charity Spotlight article from the PROMPT Maternity Foundation team, examining their work to support maternity teams by providing multi-professional training to teams across both the UK and on an international scale.
