Abstract

Bullying and harassment is a significant predicament that
midwives face on a regular basis. Bullying and harassment
may be characterized by unpleasant, threatening, malevolent
or offensive behaviour. It involves abuse or misuse of power
intended to undermine, humiliate, denigrate or harm the
recipient. Deliberate bullying and/or harassment can have
a major impact upon physical and mental health, as well as
function within role. There are consequences for the persecutor,
victim and institution in terms of health, cost and reputation.
