It's much easier to research and write about a topic that you're interested in. My suggestion would be to use a peer-reviewed database like Cochrane, Medline or Ebscohost. Type in a topic you're interested in and search for articles published within the past 5 years. Choose a topic that has a decent amount of results so that you'll have enough information for your paper.

To help you develop an effective question, try using the acronym PICO. It stands for:

P: Population (who are you researching)

I: Intervention (what action or change are you researching)

C: Comparison (what is current or an alternative practice)

O: Outcome (what effect does the intervention have)

I'll give you an example using the topic you suggested:

P: Low income women

I: Access to free prenatal care

C: no prenatal care

O: decrease premature births

For low income women, does access to free prenatal care result in fewer premature births compared to women who receive no prenatal care?
