Global Health
Vol. 22 No 4 | Summer 2020
The events of 2020 have cast global health into the spotlight. Extreme weather events, worldwide protests against systemic racism and a global pandemic have brought into sharp focus that global challenges can only be tackled through collective and collaborative efforts. When it comes to global health, there is no ‘them’, only ‘us’. – Global Health Council
Birthing
Vol. 22 No 3 | Spring 2020
Birth is more than a physical process and it behoves us to remember that birth is also an emotional and spiritual experience. American Professor of Sociology, Barbara Katz Rothman, expresses it beautifully: ‘Birth is not only about making babies. Birth is about making mothers – strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and know their inner strength.’
Self-care
Vol. 22 No 2 | Winter 2020
One definition of self care is ‘the practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own wellbeing and happiness, particularly in times of stress,’ and this seems particularly appropriate right now during this Covid-19 international health crisis.
The Ovary
Vol. 22 No 1 | Autumn 2020
The O&G Magazine Advisory Committee has devoted this issue to the ovary in recognition of its particular importance to our specialty. It is an undervalued and underrated structure that has such a central role in women’s lives. For such a small structure, it exerts phenomenal power over women’s bodies and their psychological wellbeing. It’s oocytes and the hormones produced by the ovary are essential for reproduction.
