Women's eNews reports on the dire situation of pregnant women in Gaza. As one woman they interviewed said:
"I thought my baby and I were going to die because we didn't get any medical attention till too late. I couldn't believe it when the nurse told me to look in other hospitals for a doctor since all were busy treating the injuries."
Women being denied access to medical care and attention in war-torn and crisis areas is a huge problem affecting maternal health. How can women make it to the hospital when their streets are being bombed? And how can hospitals treat newborn babies when they've lost power and are cut off from supplies?
