Not that I have had many days to devote to reading!
There are several questions posed in a postscript, and I copy three of them here for further refection:
- What if maternal qualities become the main criterion for the selection of aspiring midwives? The need to feel safe without feeling observed or judged is satisfied by the proximity of a mother-figure.
- What if obstetrics becomes a medical discipline at the service of women and midwives?
- What if the Caesarean section recovers its status of a wonderful rescue operation, while obstetric forceps find their place only in the museums?
