Gain a New or Different Perspective

How might we learn from individuals who have experienced a very different reality from our own when it comes to the new life journey?

Empathy is at the heart of designing robust solutions. Challenge yourself and see the world of maternal health and new life from someone else’s vantage point. Maybe it’s a story from someone who has learned through experience in a really different environment, or has a multi-dimensional viewpoint on what it means to be “a mom”. Do your best to immerse yourself in a different perspective and then share your experience.
