Resumen

HERNANDEZ SAINZ, Mariela  y  MARTEL MARTINEZ, Moraima. Midwives' social practice in Nuevitas before the triumph of the Revolution. Rev Hum Med [online]. 2006, vol.6, n.1. ISSN 1727-8120.

A historical investigation was carried to reflect the midwives´ social practice in the period from 1937 to 1967 in the city of Nuevitas. This exercise of social work got to an end with the disappearance of the domiciliary childbirths after the coming forth of the National Health System. It was carried out a bibliographical revision of texts that offers the “juridical and professional” image of this service, however there was not written record of the development of the midwives social practice in this town. The empiric methods that were used: interviews to midwives and their families, to old authorities of the municipality and old workers. The work of the most popular midwives was studied; and was used as variables: their ethical-humanistic values, the activity in the domiciliary childbirths and in private clinics, and their life histories.
