Midwifery Today Issue 82 Theme: Trends vs. Traditions

Both trends and traditions can be important in birth; yet they may conflict with each other. Some may even be harmful. This issue of Midwifery Today focuses on some of those trends and traditions, and sorting the good from the bad or unnecessary.

The cover photo, by Caroline E. Brown, is of her husband’s niece’s son, Roman. Roman is 10 days old in the photograph and is being held by his dad, Drew. Heather, Roman’s new mom, and Drew adopted Roman at birth.
