Fossil fuels are a finite resource and evidence is mounting that we are about to enter a time where oil prices are going to increase astronomically. What challenges will this create for maternity care providers in both developed and developing countries? Examples of maternity care provision in Cambodia will be used, based on the speakers experiences from working there as a volunteer, to illustrate what delivering care in a resource poor setting might look like. A range of suggestions will be offered on how individuals and health care services can plan to build resilience into their systems to ensure that women and their children will still have access to quality care in a post-peak oil world.
