Resilience in Midwifery

While the practice of midwifery was legalized more than 20 years ago, and demand for its services is growing, access to midwives remains limited in Quebec. Motivated by her own experience of a traumatic childbirth, Director Claudie Simard takes us along in her discovery of this underrepresented health profession. By following midwives in their daily lives, Resilience in Midwifery highlights their working conditions and expertise and reveals popular misconceptions about their profession. Finally, Resilience in Midwifery culminates in a wider reflection on childbirth conditions.
