Midwives and it is made compulsory for women, or the
husbands of such women, to secure the attendance of a midwife
or medical officer during confinement.
4. The list of registered midwives is to be published twice
a year; but while it is intended to insure that in future only
duly certificated midwives shall be admitted to the Roll, the
existing rights of licensed midwives are preserved.
