Obstetric Ethics and the Invisible Mother

A new article by Raymond De Vries recounts negative birth experiences reported by mothers "where the autonomy of the mother is weighed against the obligation of beneficence to the baby." De Vries, an expert in ethics and midwifery, explores how to make maternal health of equal importance during, and after, the birthing process. Read Obstetric Ethics and the Invisible Mother here.
