Midwifery Today Issue 80Theme: Meconium

Meconium is the name given to a baby’s first bowel movement. Normally not a problem, at times when a baby passes meconium prior to or during birth, problems can occur. In this issue of Midwifery Today birth professionals address their approaches to the presence of meconium and share stories in which meconium-stained amniotic fluid played a part. This issue also marks the beginning of a new series on bullying, and continues our business and marketing features, as well as containing a fascinating article questioning a relationship between ultrasound and autism and much more!
