"A good midwife does this by offering education, counseling and support before, during and after the baby is born, by not interfering unnecessarily with the birth process and by getting appropriate medical attention for mother or baby if it should be needed."

Research the kind of birth you want...
Though smaller scale, it was a nice change from the Time magazine article (see post below) for me to read the article "Research kind of birth you want and who can best deliver" in the Anchorage Daily News. The article quotes CfM in the definition of a midwife as: "a knowledgeable and experienced person (usually a woman) who helps a woman have a healthy, normal pregnancy and give birth to a healthy baby."
