The story behind the photo: Brazil

“First look”

In order to set an example for safe motherhood in the region, the North Zone of Natal/RN Maternity Ward has 16 hospital beds (pre-birth/birth/post-birth) that meet the requirements of “humanized” birth that encourages natural birth to women with low-risk pregnancies. One of the best examples of this type of care was 23-year-old Maira de Oliveira, overcome with emotion as she receives little Emily – who was born in a humanized birth in the afore mentioned maternity ward – in her arms and sees her for the first time.
