This information hub gathers together classic articles and blog posts written for and about midwives and midwifery practice.
Midwives have long been persecuted, frequently by from those who benefit from spreading falsehoods about us. They often do this because they seek to personally or professionally gain from undermining midwifery.
And yet midwifery care can make more of a positive difference to women, babies and families than anything else that is offered during the childbearing year. That’s shown in this Cochrane review, as well as here, and here and in this study. as well as in many other articles and studies on my website and elsewhere.
Almost all of my research has been about knowledge, though I’m interested in the entire span of ways in which we can know things, from science and statistics to experience and intuition.
Most of my books focus on evidence and science, while also looking at the wider issues and the questions that haven’t been asked or researched. But over the years, I have used my research and analysis skills to look into some of the areas that have been neglected, as well as to cover some fun topics.
This page gathers together all of my articles about midwifery practise and wisdom, including some of the lighter pieces that I have written over the years. It’s my hope that these articles might bring a smile or a knowing nod to some of the midwives out there, and that they may help the next generation as well.
