Birthing Alone: A Concern for Midwives?

Tracey Cooper et al. Midwives.


The purpose of the two articles has been to provoke thoughts around the issues of supporting women who request a birth experience that challenges the norm. In the present climate of choice, midwives and obstetricians are falling short of providing the support that some women are requesting and who feel coerced into giving birth alone. We want to see a close in the gap between women, midwives, SOMs and obstetricians for all to work together to ensure that the risks and benefits of choice are provided and documented in a way that is legally adequate and desirable to women.
