Midwifery Today, Issue 140, Winter 2021 (digital only)


Theme: Interventions

Interventions have become standard in the vast majority of births, largely because obstetricians are involved in most births. This issue discusses various interventions, as well as not intervening—and what we gain or lose. This issue also includes two birth stories from different perspectives, as well more great articles, media reviews, and editorials.
