Birth Without Doctors

Front Cover
Earthscan Publications, 1991 - Medical - 210 pages
Most women giving birth in rural communities throughout the Third World cannot enjoy the benefits of modern medical assistance. They are usually too expensive and too far away. This book is the result of journeys and conversations between the author, traditional midwives and mothers which took place over two years in Malaysia and Indonesia. It describes traditional birthing practices and the communities in which they have arisen.
