On the BBC website - mums and babies from Bolivia, Egypt, Ethiopia, India, Laos and the UK. The babies are 6 weeks old in this report.

Me too - I was fascinated by the BBC covering the six different births. It all sounded ghastly whereever they were which in lots of ways was reassuring.

Ohhh - WHO website - lots more details (and gory pictures!)

Actually I've just re-read them and they don't all sound ghastly, it was just had the 36 hour labour in a hut in Laos story which stuck in my memory...

I thought the Ethiopian woman's tale, about not being able to keep her baby, was very sad.

And the Laos woman's total lack of interest from her husband.

Really interesting link.
