This paper explores the issues related to maintaining ethical integrity during clinical research in midwifery. An overview of what are ethical principles is provided within the discussion. Particular attention is paid to some of the ethical issues that may face researchers and clinicians such as researching with vulnerable groups in midwifery like neonates, and obtaining ethical consent. Guidelines are proposed to aid both researchers and clinicians to know when research is being conducted in an ethical manner.
