Midwives in Passage

The Modernisation of Maternity Care

Cecilia Benoit (Author) 

Midwives in Passage provides a unique look at the organization of midwifery from the vantage point of several generations of midwives in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Benoit explores the social factors that undermine or enhance midwives' control over their education and practice, and calls into question both traditional and recent assumptions concerning professionalism for female service workers.
