Safety in Childbirth
Author: Marjorie Tew
Following the first edition of Safer childbirth? A critical History of Maternity Care, AIMS invited the author to write a short version. Marjorie Tew presents evidence which challenges the universal, unevaluated practice of transferring care from midwives to obstetricians when problems are anticipated, showing how much perinatal mortality is increased, rather than reduced, by this practice.
