What midwives know (and doctors don’t)

5 May 2009 at 4:11 am 3 comments

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?

    That the woman matters, too. It’s not just about mechanically or pharmaceutically forcing the baby out.
