A handbook for the training of traditional midwives

A handbook for the training of traditional midwives

Developpement et Sante (41): 19-23

Many births in Africa take place in villages far from hospitals and are attended by "experimental" midwives. This is because it may be difficult for women in the bush to reach hospitals although women who live nearby often prefer to give birth at home with the aid of older women from the local area. These traditional midwives have had a limited amount of experience but have never received any training. At the time of the delivery this may result in fatal accidents to mother and child.
