What midwives know (and doctors don’t)
In honor of today’s International Day of the Midwife I thought I’d start you out with this list–yes, it’s a generalization, of course, but you get the idea. Feel free to add to it in the comments!
What midwives know (and doctors don’t):
- that a woman knows her own body
- that birth is a natural process, not a medical condition
- that well-nourished women’s bodies do not grow babies that are too big for them to birth
So, friends of midwives, what else do midwives know and doctors don’t?
