Electronic communications can introduce a whole new world of friends, knowledge, and opportunity to the rural midwife. It can decrease isolation and improve writing skills. There are opportunities for midwives with computer skills to take part in research and participate on electronic bulletin boards designed specifically for midwives. It is the author's opinion that more midwives, especially rural midwives, should avail themselves of this knowledge.
