A serious one

I was rudely awakened by the bump doing somersaults this morning so thought I'd check out the news online while the Boy slept. What I found humbled and shocked me. Almost 300,000 women in 2005 died due to childbirth complications, almost all of them preventable. In a world with so many sad stories and causes at the moment, this one hit home for me as it crosses nationalities and circumstances. I won't prattle on but for more infomation I strongly urge you to head to (sorry, can't embed the link as I am at home on the Mac and can't figure out how to do it)
