What is Authentic Midwifery?

My definition of authentic midwife is one who truly practices "with woman" midwifery...one who trusts birth, one who knows her job is to serve women, not save them.

How true!!! I have had run-ins lately with a "med-wife" practicing as a doula in my area. I have had more clients that used to be hers call me up and ask for my help in a hospital birth because this particular "med-wife" risked them out for no explanation, nor did she provide them with referrals to another care provider. Although I guess "medwives" are necessary.... They teach us wannabe's how not to be.
