This month’s issue of BJM has a variety of articles, including research, clinical practice, professional and a birthwrite piece from Renata Boreham.
Our research section includes an analysis of a specialist service for non-pregnant women with female genital mutilation, and an exploration of maternal mortality and morbidity in Pakistan. We also include a literature review examining carbetocin vs oxytocin during third stage labour in low- and middle-income countries.
Other articles this month include a clinical practice article that appraises a supportive safety tool in the East of England and a professional piece exploring initial care during a miscarriage in the emergency department.
We also have two comment articles, one on the use of human donor milk in maternity settings, and one on an interesting new initiative, the ‘Ockenden café’.
