Overview

The "renaissance" of Canadian midwifery, suggest editors Bourgeault (sociology, McMaster U., Canada), Benoit (sociology, U. of Victoria, Canada), and Davis Floyd (anthropology, U. of Texas at Austin, US), rests upon complex blends of indigenous, provincial, and international models of maternity care and has come to serve as a inspirational model for many of outside of Canada. They present 14 papers that together aim to provide an account of the historical and cultural roots of midwifery; its evolving regulatory and institutional status; and differences in practice across ethnic, socio-economic, and regional groups.
