Midwifery Today Issue 8Theme: Fathers

This issue features the dramatic story of how a talented and dedicated doctor who was supportive of midwives was driven from her practice. In addition, a mom tells how to resolve issues having to do with a past cesarean so a VBAC can be a reality; a midwife gives us a survival guide for the single parent midwife; and a childbirth educator and author talks about Couvade syndrome (sympathetic pregnancy). A warm story about fatherly bonds and an excerpt from a book about the needs and concerns of expectant fathers complete this issue.
