This collection of thoughts, comment and writing is a living archive of the Association of Radical Midwives (ARM) members’ answers to the question: ‘what does it mean to you to be radical?’ Containing reflections from invited contributors, verbatim transcribed voices of ARM midwives, reprinted articles from the association’s journal Midwifery Matters, along with true birth stories shared by the author from her career in midwifery, Midwife Voices is a radical anthology. Themes explored cover aspects of roots, normality, feminism, choice, power, vocation, knowledge, trust and inclusivity from the perspective of midwives who consider themselves to be radical.
