Abstract

   Eight independent f practitioners were interviewed to know their experiences rendering intrapartal care to women in labor in primary care setting. The implication  of such experiences to quality education, practice and research were also established. The advantage and disadvantages of independent practice, problems in caring for women and newborns during labor and delivery and improvement in teaching , and research are discussed. Based on the experiences of the respondents, independent midwife practice is a difficult area to practice because midwives are at risk for legal impediments. There is also a need for a proper patient screening for lying in delivery and  good referral system. Many patients failed to pay especialyy those referred to other institution.
