Letter to the Editor

Patient's care is first priority

Wednesday, June 13, 2007

To the editor:In response to the op-ed column "Midwifery concerns": "First do no harm." Unless a person is trained to handle every unexpected event that can take place during prenatal care and childbirth, she is putting her patient in harm's way and has no business practicing medicine.
