    Thank you for this wonderful, moving, and informative video. It seems to me that the most important things these women need are prenatal care by well-trained midwives, clean conditions in which to birth, proper nutrition during pregnancy, education on pregnancy, newborn care, and breastfeeding,and medical backup for complications/emergencies. The message and work should not focus on women needing expensive medical interventions and doctors; most low-risk women do not need these things. Women around the world (including the U.S.) deliver babies perfectly safely at home without doctors or epidurals.
    Thank you for your work. I am a great supporter.
