I will consider aspects of midwifery important to every woman and her baby, every father/parent, no matter where they live, and no matter what their circumstances. We will consider worlds within worlds, starting with the baby as the whole world, moving to worlds of midwifery and current influences, worlds of women, worlds of health care and health care politics, worlds of science and publication. I will end with our achievements and how they might be extended to support reproductive rights, humanized maternity care and the best start in life, for all.
