Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review

If health care for pregnant and the maternal/infant dyad is absent through lack of specific childbirth education for penial health care workers and lack of respectful, caring maternity care, then the cycle of trauma, multigenerational crime, and cases like those seen in the UK will continue around the globe.
