    Global Maternal Health Conference 2013 This final morning session focused on Respectful Maternal Health Care. Mlay described one definition of respectful maternal health care as a healing relationship between the provider and the woman. She also told her own experience with respectful care, setting the stage for some of the next presenters to describe other experiences. Hill described her work with the TRACtion project and how their study found that disrespectful care is a problem everywhere. She went on to describe the 7 different categories of disrespectful care as well as describe the scale of respectful care as a continuum of care. Limbu told of her work with the White Ribbon Alliance and shared with the audience a video which is being used as an advocacy tool for respectful care. She described the need for legal and political movements, but noted that accountability and enforcement must be a part of these actions. Warren outlined her study in Kenya which found that there were a host of different types of disrespect, including physical abuse, confidentiality issues, and issues surrounding dignity. D'Mello rounded out the panel by describing her work with CCBRT and their fistula repair program. She reported the situation of many of the maternity wards in the hospitals in Dar es Salaam and illustrated one way of impacting respectful care by helping with the infrastructure and workload of those maternity care wards. At 1 hour and 38 minutes, the First Lady of the United Republic of Tanzania, Madame Kikwete, officially started the last day of sessions by reviewing the accomplishments of maternal health work in Tanzania, as well as what needs to be done in the future.

            Global Maternal Health Conference 2013 Kivunaga began the session by describing men's perceptions around SRH services in Kenya and how they could be integrated into those programs. The found that men were interested in becoming involved in these services, yet were hesitant on a few fronts including partner testing, male involvement in the mostly-female hospital wards, and the ability to accompany their partners in long lines and during-the-work-day scheduling of appointments. Sapkota discussed men's involvement in the labor and post-partum periods, as it relates to the well-being of the mother. She and her colleagues found that with husband companionship, post natal support, anxiety and depressive symptoms were fewer with those that had husband support. Ahmed's presentation focused on the health knowledge of men in Bangladesh. Results found that there was a dearth of knowledge when it came to certain maternal health complications, situations and advice for the mother as compared to the female's knowledge. Hashima-E-Nasreen presented on men’s knowledge and awareness on maternal, neonatal and child health issues in Bangladesh. Results varied between the control and test subjects, but more training and knowledge is needed amongst the male population, in general. Nazib Uz U Zaman Khan also focused on Bangladesh, but on men's knowledge and involvement in longer term maternal morbidities. It was found that many husbands were unaware of their wives' morbidities and even when disclosed, did not know how to support or deal with those conditions. This had a severe effect on the women including mental and (some) physical trauma.

                  While there are various representations of women in labour, these tend to focus attention on the event of the child’s birth, not the woman’s birthing process, often objectifying her in favour of the subjectivity of the newborn. "Lilla’s Birthing" seeks to redress this, re-establishing the birthing woman as empowered within her own labouring, not victim of it. Through a normalised woman centred portrayal of birthing, the widespread misrepresentation of labouring women and their bodies is undermined. The camera remains as closely as possible with the woman, the edit favours the process over the event (the birth itself occupies seconds out of the 60 minutes of the film’s length), the humour, mundanity, excitement, joy, boredom and the pain intermingle, the cyclical rhythm of the contractions set the pace. "Lilla's Birthing" is usually exhibited with "Portrait of a Labour", a book work which works with and against the film. The intimacy of the book format allows the viewer to examine that which the film denies, the expression, the identity, the representations of her which the film references (you see these shots being taken) but refuses.
