Theme: Core Midwifery Skills

Midwifery Today’s goal has always been to bring the best information to midwives and mothers. One of the most effective ways we know of to enact change is through education. That is why we are excited for this issue on Core Midwifery Skills. We have solicited articles from experts in the field of gentle birth, including Michel Odent, Sister MorningStar, Diane Goslin and Vicki Penwell. We hope you enjoy Issue 118, and we are always grateful to hear your feedback, either through our Facebook page or via e-mail at

Articles include:

  • Hands on, Hands off: Midwifing the Inner Life of Women by Sister MorningStar. In this article, midwife MorningStar does what she does best: speaks about the needs of a laboring woman.
  • The Heart of the Core by Aubre Tompkins. A wonderful discussion about the art of midwifery and the science of midwifery—how each is important and has its place at birth.
  • Midwifery Tomorrow by Michel Odent. Obstetrician and natural childbirth advocate Michel Odent discusses the future of birth and the two scenarios he sees that are most plausible based on our current situation.

  • Midwifery: The Role of Proctoclysis (Rectal Fluid Infusion) by Annalee Reid.
