From a career point of view I now have little to show for the three decades I spent as a midwife in Australia. That time came to an end because of two factors. First, there was the largely undebated destruction in the age of feminism of the publicly funded lying in period for new mothers; it wasnt undebated by me. Secondly an attack on me by a “progressive” politician misusing the police severely damaged my capacity to function as an Australian. I am still recovering, still in a state of shock;
Miwifery taught me much about the astonishing beauty of life when men and women combine in care of the newborn.
Why have western societies forgotten that?
