However, domiciliary obstetrics is the ‘art of invisibility’ and without complications a woman gives birth herself, supported and aided by her midwife. -Jan Pilgrim
I told my clients that the greatest compliment that they could pay me was to forget I was at their birth. I know that Dr. John felt the same way about his clients. His belief that birth belonged to the families he was serving and not to him or any other "authority" made him so much more of a trust birth midwife than many female midwives I know.
