We are talking to women/groups of women from Asia and the Pacific, Europe and Africa about their own experiences of being cared for and about their traditional practices. We also talk to men about their roles of support at this time. The value of good post natal care for mothers is revealed and the challenges in maintaining it are discussed. The media used are written, audio and film.
Raising awareness of this issue is relevant to all women, men and their families/communities who are involved in bringing up children. It is also important for healthcare workers and all of us who live in a multicultural society. We can learn from these practices from other societies and their knowledge can inspire us to practical solutions.
