The Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan is meant to house 60,000 people displaced by the Syria conflict. So far, 160,000 now crowd the 2.8 square-mile camp, making it Jordan’s fifth-largest city. There is one clinic in Zaatari, which keeps one doctor and two midwives on staff at all times. There is also one hospital to provide C-sections, run by the Moroccan military, where one gynecologist and one anesthesiologist might oversee five deliveries a day.
As the world awaited the birth of Prince William's heir in London, between 13 and 15 babies were estimated to have been delivered in the Zaatari refugee camp.
