UK Midwifery Archives

These archives contain posts and extracts from the UK Midwives and Consumers email list, a discussion group for people interested in midwifery in the UK. Open to midwives, students, mothers, and anyone interested in improving maternity services in UK. Posts in these archives express the views of the individual authors, and not those of the Association of Radical Midwives. Unless otherwise stated, the comments are personal experiences rather than evidence-based research, and these pages may not have been updated for some time. Nonetheless, they are preserved as an archive of midwives’ and mothers’ wisdom.
