I am a obstetrician who collaborates with midwives.
I believe strongly in the midwifery model of care and the right of a woman to true informed consent and refusal
in the birth process. The hospitals where I attend births have created new policies that seem to violate basic human rights, patient autonomy, possibly EMTALA
and may very well be illegal.
