Midwifery Today Issue 49 Theme: Bridging the Gap

Get in on the discussion about midwifery in the United States. Where is it going? Is everyone in this together or are different kinds of midwives becoming alienated from one another? How do we achieve balance so more women who might choose midwife-attended birth are better served? Issue 49 addresses numerous concerns from all corners of midwifery and offers some viable suggestions for bringing everyone together in the center. As well, a thorough look at the use of misoprostol (Cytotec) gives readers some very compelling things to think about.
