Each year Bournemouth University (BU) holds a Festival of Learning (FoL), a week-long series of events aimed at encouraging members of the public, academics and healthcare professionals to engage with BU’s current science and research projects. This year BU’s Centre for Midwifery, Maternal and Perinatal Health (CMMPH) resumed the tradition of holding a debate during the festival on a topic relevant to maternal health and childbirth. In 2016 the FoL debate took place at the end of June and focused on the motion: " Advising pregnant women to avoid drinking alcohol during pregnancy is a symptom of the Nanny State and another step towards the medicalisation of childbirth."
