This U.K. book is written by Faye Thompson, who has thirty years experience as a midwife and educator. She studied philosophy and the humanities as an undergraduate in Australia, and now lectures on health care ethics. As a feminist, she seeks to reunite morality and personal interest so that the woman is not subordinated in women's health and childbirth practices.

From this experience, she offers 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.

  • 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
