Prioritizing research into midwifery — particularly on family planning, preterm births, and high-quality care — can help address these unacceptably high rates of death for newborn children and women giving birth, according to a study led by Dr. Holly Powell Kennedy, PhD, CNM, FACNM, FAAN, executive dean of the Yale School of Nursing and a past president of ACNM, and published in The Lancet Global Health.
