Abstract

ABSTRACT: The 2010 Afghanistan Mortality Survey estimates that for every 1,000 births, 73 infants and 3 to 5 women die. In this article, a nurse relays the very personal story of a young mother losing her infant in childbirth in Afghanistan and makes suggestions for how nurses can get involved in improving women's health in developing countries.
