Ethical Issues Relating to Childbirth as Experienced by the Birthing Woman and Midwife
I am a woman; I am a mother. I have given birth three times. I am a midwife—a lay midwife. The purpose of this paper is to root a concept, “ethical issues,” in the flesh and blood of women’s lives, of families’ lives, in the lives of midwives whose basic function is to help women in their birthing. Because I am both mother and midwife I find it difficult to separate these perspectives, so in this paper “they” may slip into being “we.”
