Midwifery Today Issue 116Theme: Newborns

The theme of Newborns seems like the perfect way to end 2015 and begin 2016. As midwives, doulas, nurses and birthworkers, our goal is to support birth in the best way possible, with the end result being a healthy mother and a healthy baby. This issue of Midwifery Today magazine is dedicated to all newborns, and it is filled with great wisdom from experienced doctors, midwives and doulas, including Michel Odent, Gail Hart, Fernando Molina, Robin Lim and Mary Esther Malloy. May every human on Earth have the chance to be born with safety, gentleness and, when necessary, the best technology available.
