It is a great pleasure for me to welcome you to the Childbirth Research blog which is run by researchers at the Institute of health and care sciences at Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg.
This blog is started with the aim to inform about our research and inspire researchers, clinicians and stakeholders in their promotive work for health in relation to childbirth. We are currently nine active researchers developing knowledge in terms of research and education within the field of childbirth.
We encourage you to comment on our blog entries and join us in what will hopefully be an engaging and lively community discussion.
