One in twenty-six women die of pregnancy complications in Zambia. There is clearly a need for improvement to protect some of the most vulnerable. The World Health Organization mandated that women’s health should be a priority. Nowhere is the struggle more visible than in the low cost labor ward, B12, at the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka, Zambia.
This film offers a hyper-realistic behind-the-scenes view of the low cost labor ward, B12, at the University Teaching Hospital. Follow patients, doctors, caregivers, and midwives as their days intersect and unfold into a powerful narrative about determination, strength, life, and loss. The film highlights the need for improvements in women’s healthcare and the powerful personal narratives that beat all odds.
