Praise for previous editions: "An excellent resource for both student midwives andqualified staff alike." (Alison James, MidwiferyLecturer, Plymouth University) "A lovely book with a lot of practical advice and easy tonavigate. (Jayne Samples, Midwifery Lecturer, University ofHuddersfield) This fully revised and updated third edition of TheMidwife's Labour and Birth Handbook is a practical andaccessible guide to midwifery care. It addresses important questions such as: * Why are women being pressured into caesarean section for breechpresentation when the evidence is equivocal? * If a baby needs assisted ventilation breaths at birth, why notbring the ambubag to the baby and leave the cord intact so the babycan benefit from the extra maternal oxygen supply? * Why is skin-to-skin contact at birth so rarely offered topreterm babies when there is evidence of benefit? This well-regarded text promotes normality and woman-centredcare, using research, evidence-based guidelines and anecdotalaccounts from women. It challenges practice and guidelines whichare biased or based on poor evidence. Guidance is offered on how todeal with difficult, sometimes controversial, situations. The Midwife's Labour and Birth Handbook 3rdedition is an essential guide for both student midwives andexperienced practising midwives. New to this edition: * Full colour photographs including a kneeling breech birth * Suturing diagrams to assist left-handed midwives. * Expanded chapters on slow progress in labour andmalposition/malpresentations, including a rare photograph of a facepresentation birth.

Rezensionen
"With this latest edition, the authors have supplied a guide to contemporary midwifery practice that will be useful to both new and experienced midwives, and indeed to anyone involved with the care of mother and baby in the labour and birth setting. Highly recommended." (Nursing Times, 5 August 2014)

"This is a useful book, written at a level that students can clearly follow and easily understand." (Doody's, 7 March 2014)

"It is not an exhaustive textbook of midwifery practice, but, rather, a very helpful handbook that the student will find invaluable for review and the experienced, seasoned midwife can use to maintain currency with evidence-based practice." (Birth, 3 September 2013)

"The Midwife's Labour and Birth Handbook appears in its third updated edition to provide a fine survey fully revised and updated for the latest midwifery practices. From professional questions in birthing options and recommendations based on anticipated issues to breech births, skin-to-skin contact at birth, and guidelines based on poor evidence and how to overcome them, this is a solid reference that includes new color photos, suturing diagrams to assist left-handed midwives, and expanded chapters on malposition and slow labor. At each step of the birth, midwifery requirements and recommendations are covered in depth, making for a fine reference loaded with bibliographical references and best practices based on the latest research." (Midwest Book Reviews, 1 July 2013)
