12. Midwives Using Research: Evidence-based Practice & Evidence-informed Midwifery

What is evidence-based practice? How does evidence-informed midwifery define itself? We explore the intertwined histories of midwifery and EBP to show the meaning and importance of EBP to midwifery practice and policy.

13. Midwife as Researcher

Where does midwifery research come from? How can midwives contribute to research? We provide a historical context for midwives as researchers, describe the research process, and provide a rationale for midwives to undertake profession-specific research.
