What really matters?

“Factors that have eroded midwifery skill are largely political; embedded in midwifery laws in the form of practice guidelines … A model of perinatal care that offers insight, continuity and intuition; respects birth as an altered state; shows reverent curiosity at every stage of the process; honors diversity; and features topnotch skills for handling complications is based primarily on promoting client/baby well-being rather than relying on standardized procedures.”

– Elizabeth Davis
