The politics of maternity.
  Changes in the culture of health care require that, to be effective, midwifery practice should become more woman-centred. This may be facilitated by adopting a stronger community orientation. In this way the hegemony of maternity care may be addressed. This paper seeks to draw readers’ attention to political developments and to inspire midwives to greater awareness and, possibly, activity.
