Ryan McAllister is a parent, biophysicist and a research professor at Georgetown University. Ryan has for over 10 years studied maternity care. Ryan presents this YouTube video called “Unbreaking Birth” . This video is well worth watching. Presenting complex issues in an easy to understand manner Ryan explores the United States maternity care system and highlights how this system has profoundly failed.

While based on the maternity care system in the United States – the information presented relates quite closely to the Australian Maternity Care system.
