Midwifery Today Issue 9 Theme:  Midwifery Yesterday

A startling story of an insurance company dictating compulsory cesareans discusses in detail the outdated maxim “once a cesarean, always a cesarean.” An article on rituals of pregnancy and birth gives an overview of how these two passages can be celebrated, and various authors delve into “midwifery yesterday”—a revealing look at midwifery’s not-too-distant past.
