Over half of births in Rohingya camps take place at home, with only the support of traditional birth attendants. While their presence might reduce the risk of stillbirth, birth attendants often lack the skills or equipment required for truly safe delivery. This report provides insights into new Rohingya mothers’ experiences and perspectives of giving birth and their beliefs and practices relating to the care of themselves and their babies during birth and in the first month of the child’s life.
