The Editors wish to call attention to an error which appeared in the article, “Nurse-Midwifery: Fifteen Years,” by Louis M. Hellman, M.D. which appeared in the August, 1971 issue. On page 76, it states that the ACOG Committee on Professional Personnel recommended, with the American College of Nurse-Midwives, the Joint Statement on Maternity Care that was approved by the College in 1971. Actually, that statement was developed by representatives appointed by the Presidents of the College (ACOG), the Nurses Association of the College and the American College of Nurse-Midwives and was approved by the Executive bodies of all three organizations.
