«The midwives strongly believed that the health of pregnant women and young children in their communities could be better, through better food choices, acceptance of supplements and rejection of detrimental lifestyle choices (e.g., use of alcohol, cigarettes and drugs). However, the midwives also shared a clear perception that rapid social changes (especially related to diet and access to affordable healthy foods), lack of education, widespread substance abuse and reduced community involvement challenged efforts to support healthy pregnancies.» (p. 132) «The midwives of the Inuulitsivik region expressed concern about unhealthy behaviours in young women and about the decline of traditional beliefs, particularly during pregnancy. They were eager to engage the community and promote knowledge locally to reduce nutritional deficiencies and optimize health during pregnancy and infancy.» (p. 133)
