There is one particularly heart-breaking case on my mind at present – that of a very young woman in our ICU who came some days ago in severely obstructed labour – we’re talking days and days of failure to deliver here. Eventually her uterus ruptured necessitating in an emergency hysterectomy during the Cesarean.
Emma finds her perceptions of her own femininity  are put into perspective by a young, female patient with a tragic childbirth experience. Emma’s working as a nurse with MSF in South Sudan. Please leave your questions and comments for Emma in the box below her blog post.
