ABSTRACT

The 1984 bill to separate midwifery from nursing practice in New York State is commented upon from the point of view of the arguments in favor of separation and the differing opinions of the author. It is suggested that such separation might appear to be motivated by other than a concern for the improvement of maternity care. Various facets of the bill are discussed in relation to the ACNM's decision to seek separate statutes.
