What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?

According to WHO an estimated number of 2.6 million stillbirths occur every year. More than a half happen in rural areas, 98% occur in low and middle income countries. Most stillbirths are preventable by good health and nutrition, a quality antenatal care, and a quality care during labour and childbirth.

How does this research relate to our use cases and personas?

This research is related to the under-resourced mom. What can be done to prevent stillbirth? How can psychological help for mothers and families be ensured to overcome this tragedy?
