Midwifery Today, Issue 105, Spring 2013


Theme: Hemorrhage

The theme of Midwifery Today Issue 105 is Hemorrhage. Though hemorrhage is commonly thought of as a deadly scourge of developing countries, it is increasingly present within the US. The management of the third stage of labor has had an impact on the occurrence of this potentially life-threatening problem. The pages of this issue are filled with wisdom from some of the most knowledgeable minds on the subject, such as Robin Lim of Indonesia, French obstetrician Michel Odent and midwife Marlene Waechter. You will also enjoy reading midwife Sister MorningStar’s thoughts on midwifery education and an emotionally charged piece written of a midwife’s story of her arrest. As always, we want to thank you for your support of the magazine.

That experience changed her life and she has never looked back.
