Thousands of women experience problems during childbirth or pregnancy each year

“Thousands of women experience problems during childbirth or pregnancy each year, yet some of the techniques for dealing with difficult labours haven't changed during the last 50 years and may, according to some experts, do more harm than good. We talk to the director of a new centre aiming to make childbirth safer and less traumatic and to help women who have had one difficult labour, avoid having the same problems the next time round.
Bidisha is joined by Sarah Parmenter, Professor Susan Wray, Director of the Centre for Better Births in Liverpool and Dr Sarah Vause, consultant obstetrician at St Mary's Hospital in Manchester.”

This is the introduction of the Woman's Hour Podcast on Better Births.
