The report is divided into chapters on the obstetric education of physicians, nurses, midwives and the laity. For physicians it is recommended that more teaching instruction be given in obstetrics, and that fundamental requirements should be a measure of his ability as a specialist. The same applies to nurses and midwives. It is felt that the social worker has had insufficient training in medical social work. Prenatal and postpartum clinics under the charge of a physician should be established in all communities and should be closely linked with a well equipped hospital. The chapters are fully illustrated with charts and tables made from questionnaires received illustrating these points.
