Julia Jaekel & Hillary Fouts Explain Refugee Mother’s Child Care Practices

“‘Our world currently has the largest refugee population ever reported. Refugee mothers are giving birth and raising infants under scarce conditions characterized by chronic stress and traumatic experiences, malnutrition and lack of access to health care. This may cause an increased risk to give birth preterm, in particular among African refugee women.

How can we support the long-term health and wellbeing of refugee infants?'”
