WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The number of U.S. fathers staying at home nearly doubled since the late 1980s, led by a sharp rise in child care by dads, a report on Thursday showed.
High joblessness during the 2007-2009 recession helped boost the number of stay-at-home dads to 2 million in 2012, up from 1.1 million in 1989, the report by the Pew Research Center said.
WASHINGTON, June 3 (Reuters) – The majority of the world’s
poorer countries, which account for nearly all
childbirth-related deaths among newborns and mothers, are facing
a critical shortage of professional midwives who could ease the
problem, global health experts said on Tuesday.
Among 73 lower and middle income nations, just four -
Armenia, Colombia, Dominican Republic and Jordan – have adequate
resources in place, according to a review led by the United
Nations Populations Fund and the World Health Organization.
