So when I saw the title of this article I expected to see women in absolutely unfit conditions to give birth. Now while these may not be ideal settings, I keep thinking of the idea that comes up in class that women have, and will continue to give birth. This comes to mind, because even with the limited resources associated with the locations of these countries, these women are still able to give birth to babies that look fairly healthy and the women look like they are in decent condition. The midwives and doctors serving them looked to be trained birth attendants as well. So while I think the article wanted to say these pictures are supposed to make one shocked at how poor the conditions are, for me it was a reminder that life finds a way. Now with this being said there is so much work that can be done to improve the birthing conditions in this part of the world as we discuss at length in class. Yet, I just wanted to post this article because the pictures are striking, but not for the reasons I expected.
