The Wider Image: New mothers suffer nerves, guilt as maternity leave ends
Many new mothers worldwide express anxiety and guilt about leaving their babies to return to work, and some worry their nations' maternity policies reflect societies that value productivity over raising children. In a series of interviews for Reuters ahead of International Women's Day on March 8, mothers from the United States to Uruguay to South Africa to Singapore told of their concerns about stopping work to give birth and look after their newborns. An Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) report in 2016 found that among OECD countries, mothers are on average entitled to 18 weeks of paid maternity leave around childbirth. But the range is vast. While some countries - such as Britain and Russia, offer many months or even several years of maternity leave, the United States is the only country to offer no statutory entitlement to paid leave on a national basis.

Zhou Ziwei plays with his cousin at a shopping mall in Beijing, China October 30, 2015. Wang Yi, 34, an office worker, the mother of the five-year-old Zhou Ziwei said she does not want to have a second child because it takes efforts to raise her son. She does not expect the rule change bring more childbirths in China because many of her friends have hesitated to have second child since the implement of the one-child policy last time, as raising children requires a lot of effort. China has unwound its one-child policy, for decades a symbol of invasive and coercive government planning, but the shift has been met with a disinterested shrug from many younger couples.

Nearly four years into the crisis, people at the snowed-in settlement near the border said they would welcome any kind of solution in Syria between warring parties so they can go home.

A midwife teaches post-partum mothers the use of Cycle Beads for the Standard Days family planning method at Jose Fabella maternity hospital in Manila September 12, 2012. The Standard Days Method is a fertility awareness based family planning method that identifies a fixed fertile window for women. Pitting himself against the teachings of the country's powerful Catholic church, Philippine President Benigno Aquino, a Catholic like 80 percent of the population, has thrown his support behind a reproductive health bill that will, if passed, guarantee access to free birth control and promote sex education.

The United Nations on Sunday called on Philippine leaders to pass the reproductive health bill, two days before the House of Representatives is scheduled to take a crucial vote on whether to end debates on the measure. It argued that the RH bill is not about population numbers as it is about ensuring a life of health and dignity. The UN statement also said, Family Health Survey (FHS), which was conducted from August to September 2011 with a recall period of six years for the data, estimated that for every 100,000 live births, there are 221 women dying due to complications of pregnancy and childbirth. This was a 36 percent increase from the 2006 Family Planning Survey data, which showed 162 estimated deaths per 100,000 live births. The FHS also estimated that, across all regions in the Philippines, the number of girls 15 to 19 years old who have delivered live births was 54 per 1,000 live births from 39 in 2006. For the 20 to 24 age group, the increase was to 159 per 1,000 live births from 149 in the 2006 survey. Picture taken August 5, 2012. REUTERS/Erik De Castro (PHILIPPINES - Tags: POLITICS HEALTH)
