Edmund G. Howe, “When a Mother Wants to Deliver with a Midwife at Home,”

The Journal of Clinical Ethics 24, no. 3 (Fall 2013): 172-83.



        In this special issue of The Journal of Clinical Ethics, different views on both the ethical desirability of women delivering in hospitals or at home with midwives are discussed. What careproviders, including midwives, should recommend to mothers in regard to the place of giving birth is considered. Emotional concerns likely to be of importance to mothers, fathers, midwives, and doctors are also presented. Finally, possible optimal approaches at the levels of both policy and the bedside are suggested.
