What care will the mother of the seven billionth baby receive? Natalie Imbruglia guest blogs for the Department of International Development.
With the world's population expected to hit seven billion any day now, Virgin Unite and the Campaign to End Fistula spokesperson Natalie Imbruglia discusses the issues.
She speaks about how Richard Branson introduced her to the problem of fistula and the work of Virgin Unite and the United Nations Population Fund to combat it.
The singer and actress said: "This month, the seven billionth human being will be born. It may be a baby boy or a baby girl, it will probably be born in the developing world, and chances are good that this baby's mother will suffer complications or even a severe birth injury like obstetric fistula. Up to 45,000 women do, every day.
"Treating a woman with fistula gives back a life, gives back a mother, a wife, a daughter and a productive member of society. Life with fistula is not much of a life at all. We can make a difference."
