Midwifery Today, Issue 113, Spring 2015


Theme: Group B Strep

Our Spring 2015 issue is dedicated to the topic Group B Strep (GBS). At 72 pages, it is filled with clinical articles, vital information, midwifery tricks of the trade, gorgeous birth photos and delightful homebirth stories from around the world.

The topic of group B strep, GBS testing, antibiotics and sick babies is not something that makes for pleasant conversation. However, it certainly is a topic that birth workers must be knowledgeable about. That is why we asked certain people to write on this topic: Michel Odent, Sister MorningStar and Marion Toepke McLean. Robin Lim has an article somewhat related to the theme, titled, “When Pregnancy Goes South: Keeping Birth Gentle.” Also included in the pages of this issue are two very powerful birth stories: one where Sister MorningStar midwifes a Nicaraguan couple via the telephone through the birth of their first child 1000 miles away; the other is a wonderful story of surrogacy. I hope you enjoy curling up with this issue of Midwifery Today. Get ready to learn a lot and to be inspired!
