When done well, maternity care brings together four “voices”: the voice of midwifery, which sees birth as a healthy physiological process; the voice of obstetrics, which can manage pathology; the voice of fear (or respect), which encourages vigilance; and the voice of trust, which allows a woman to have confidence in herself and her caregivers. Our goal is to keep these voices singing in harmony.
