On What it Means to Be a Midwife

What makes a midwife? So many competing definitions based on the practical (pieces of paper) to the more ethereal. In the end, it’s up to every birth attendant to be honest.

About the Midwife and the OB

Can a doctor and a midwife get along? Or at least respectfully disagree on important issues surrounding pregnancy and birth? The One About the Midwife and the OB is a collaborative project between Maryn Green, CPM and Nathan Riley, MD that hopes to bridge the gap personally and professionally between medicine and midwifery. Listen in on these honest conversations between friends as they tackle topics in pregnancy and birth that are often divisive.

  1. Thank you for this. I’m midwife in Australia in the process of being terminated for non compliance. This episode was healing for me and I felt a part of a community just by listening. 100% felt like you verbalised my feelings at a time when I’m broken and considering the path ahead. Thank you ❤️
