“Any woman who has had a midwife care will tell you that it is not just a question of what a midwife knows and how clever she is that matters, but who she is as a person. Research on woman’s birth experiences reveals that it is the quality of the relationship between a woman and her midwife that is the single most important factor in being able to look back on birth as a satisfying experience.”
