Researchers say that elective C-sections are safest for the baby when done between 39 to 41 weeks of gestation and that women considering elective C-sections should wait until that point for the safest delivery. Though surgical know-how has grown with the increased use of C-sections, doctors say it is still important for women to weigh all possible risks against possible benefits when opting for the procedure.

Ethics of Paid Maternity Leave Introduction Why maternity leave is beneficial According to the Save the Children - State of the World Mothers 2012 report, “much of a child’s future – and in fact much of a nation’s future – is determined by the quality of nutrition in the first 1,000 days. The period from the start of a mother’s pregnancy through her child’s second birthday is a critical window when a child’s brain and body are developing rapidly and good nutrition is essential to lay the foundation for a healthy and productive future. If children do not get the right nutrients during this period, the damage is often irreversible”.

In the United States alone, it is estimated that low rates of breastfeeding add $13 billion to medical costs and lead to 911 excess deaths every year (Save, 2012).

There are many consequences of a woman's choice of model of care and it could be the subject of more midwifery research to discover why women choose a specific model of care and how they would evaluate the outcome of that decision. However, this assignment aims to give only a brief survey of the caseload midwifery and homebirth models of care. Pregnant women are faced with an overwhelming array of options for their pregnancy, birth and postnatal care. However, while there may be many options, how can a woman choose which one is appropriate for her?

Others say they cannot afford a child, and then some say that they do not want to be a single parent or are having problems with their husband or partner.
Midwives often work on their own and must be extremely competent at what they do. They are responsible for the woman and her unborn child and therefore must be able to identify high risk pregnancies and know when to make referrals to other medical specialists. They provide advice and guidance on all aspects of pregnancy and birth and this will allow the parents to make informed decisions on where to have the birth, whether/why/how to breastfeed, healthy choices during pregnancy, what tests are available and pain relief during childbirth to name but a few. Ultimately any decision lies with the parents and the midwife should always respect this. Midwives are also on hand to help with birth plans, these convey the mother’s
Even though the societies that practice circumcision can be very different, in each one the majority of females get little to no education and are simply looked upon as child bearers. In some communities, the husband's family pays a bride price to the family of the woman to be married which gives his family the right to her labor and her children unfortunately she has no right to or control over either. For example, in Somalia the husband's family may have the right to inspect the bride's body prior to marriage, if they wish or are skeptical and the mothers usually check their mutilated daughters to make sure that they are still sealed up. This practice is not meant to be harmful, but to ensure their daughter is pure so that the family is able to receive the bride price. In many cultures, pressure is put on
