Mads Nissen/ Berlingske

Hetauda, Makwanpur, NEPAL

35 year old Santa Maya Rumba lies on a bed during her labour. Following three days of contractions she travelled by foot and by bus to get from her mountain home to the maternity hospital. A state program has been instigated to enable women to have hospital births instead of home births and thereby reduce infant and maternal mortality rates at birth.
