Greetings from Wadia Journal of Women and Child Health.

We are happy to share yet another issue of the journal. WJWCH is gaining widespread recognition among researchers worldwide, and we are receiving submissions from across the globe.

The current issue has interesting articles on varied subjects. Exclusive breast feeding has been found superior to any other form of infant feeding across the world. Khaled Abdo Alselwi et al., have elucidated the protective effect of exclusive breast feeding in Yemeni infants.[1] The importance of histological examination of missed or spontaneously aborted conceptus is reiterated by Balsarkar et al. in their article on Hydatidiform Molar pregnancy.[2] Nutritional Vitamin D deficiency (NVDD) is the most common nutritional deficiency syndrome and clinically manifest rickets (NVDDR) is just the tip of the iceberg. Ashima Dabas et al. have given a review of understanding and challenges in managing NVDDR.[3] There are many interesting and informative case reports.

Respectful maternity care (RMC) is an approach centered on an individual, based on principles of ethics and respect for human rights, and promotes practices that recognize women’s preferences and addresses the needs of women and newborns. RMC is a universal human right that is due to every childbearing woman in every health system. Delivering RMC from the district of Pune is presented by Humaira Ansari et al.[4] This study reiterates the gaps in providing RMC. The negative patient experiences at health institutions contribute to poor health outcomes and reinforce mistrust of institutional care.

As we bring you this issue, we remain committed to our mission of continually enhancing our knowledge for the betterment of the community. Our priority is “Health for All,” with a special focus of women and child health.

Thank you for all the support. We look forward to continuing to receive high quality articles as we strive for indexing.

Happy reading!!
