A common thread running through this edition of Footsteps is the role of the father. A father’s knowledge about pregnancy and birth, his willingness to make plans with his wife for the birth, and his commitment to help make the necessary arrangements and save enough money all demonstrate that he is an honourable man who wants to protect his wife and unborn child from harm. Support from everyone else in the community is important too, especially when the father is absent.

This edition suggests ideas and gives examples of how to help families and communities avoid the delays that lead to women dying in childbirth. It focuses on the knowledge and preparation that are needed for a safe birth.
