Example text

This may be operationalised through instruments such as the EEC (1980) Midwives Directives. Inevitably in the context of regulation it is usual to think first of the national legislative process. Of particular interest and, as a result, well-researched and documented is the legislation which regulates the practice, education and registration of the UK midwife. The UK midwifery legislation was originally intended to protect the public from inappropriate midwifery practice. This legislation also proved to have the indirect effect of protecting the midwife from litigation due to practising outside or below currently accepted standards (Lewison, 1996).

Additionally, fees paid to medical practitioners by clients were regulated at a higher level than those for the midwife, clearly providing her with a competitive edge (van Teijlingen, 1994). The Dutch state in the twentieth century further favoured the status of the midwife. A regulatory framework was introduced to strengthen the position of the midwife in her power base in the family home. This was achieved through the recognition of the maternity home care assistant (MHCA), whose function is to undertake certain basic nursing and household duties around the time of the birth under the direction of the midwife.

Thus, it is apparent that in historical terms the state regulation of maternity care in the Netherlands has been powerfully favourable to the midwife in comparison to the other providers of maternity care. Politics Apart from its party political connotations the term `politics' is infrequently explained in spite of being widely used. This observation is exemplified in an otherwise admirable scrutiny of cross-national midwifery politics (Declerq, 1994). In the context of the regulation of systems of maternity care, I am using `politics' in the more Machiavellian sense of `astutely contriving or intriguing' (Macdonald, 1981).
