I just read a fascinating story about Norman Morris, a professor and obstetrician in the UK. He died last month so his career was chronicled briefly in the Telegraph.
Throughout his life Morris was guided by a deep humanism. He felt that the way in which women were traditionally treated by the health service was inhumane, and that the psychological stress involved often militated against the best possible outcomes and tended to increase demand for artificial pain relief.
If that doesn’t pique your interest . . .
