Sample text

In 1818, the first national law regulating midwives was passed, affirming the place of midwives as legitimate and appropriate providers of care at birth; in 1865 a law defining the practice of medicine established midwives as independent medical practitioners (Marland 1993, pp. 26–29). The 1941 law that created the health care system that exists in the Netherlands today gave midwives the socalled primaat, referred to by some as a “monopoly over normal obstetrics” (Abraham-Van der Mark 1993, p. 4).

Interestingly, some of the harshest critics of home birth in the Netherlands are Dutch gynecologists. Not only have these specialists criticized their obstetric system on the pages of international journals, but, for several years, their professional organization, the Nederlandse Vereniging voor Obstetrie en Gynaecologie (NVOG) refused to formally ratify the revised Obstetric Indications List, believing it gave too much power to midwives and GPs. Students of the professions in the United States will find it odd that a prestigious group of medical specialists lacks the power to shape government decisions in a way that favors their interests.
