A framework of ethics specific to midwifery and derived from midwifery practice that takes ethical discourse beyond current literature, proposing strategies for ethical practice based on findings arising out of the profession itself.

Key Features

  • Refines the understanding of ethics within the context of everyday midwifery practice
  • Offers an alternative approach to the ethics of professional practice, reuniting morality and personal interest
  • The aspirations, values and lived reality of mothers and midwives, and the commitment of the midwife to the woman are the focus of a newly constructed ethic for midwifery practice
  • Readership
