Client-Practitioner Encounters

Part of the Culture, Illness, and Healing book series (CIHE, volume 3)


Perhaps the most illustrative approach to detailing the nature of the acceptable “range of therapeutic alternatives” is to present several cases of client-practitioner encounters. These cases will highlight some techniques, practices and concepts common to Bariba midwifery and will give an indication of the birth setting as well as of the characteristics of the relationship between the woman who is delivering and the matrone.
