What is it about?
Midwifery centers are healthcare facilities built exclusively for the practice of midwifery. We evaluated women's experience of trust and respect during care at midwifery centers, hospitals with midwives, and hospitals without midwives. Midwifery centers provided the highest rates of trust and respect, even during covid.
