The Independent Midwife offers practical advice for those wishing to set up an independent practice or partnership. Originally published in 1993, the book has proved to be an invaluable source of advice and information for any midwife interested in continuity of care and in autonomous practice. The new edition includes a brand new chapter on the subject of insurance, which has altered dramatically since the first book was produced.
