Editorial Reviews

Jan Salstrom
The more common alternative modalities, efficacy, and limitations during the childbearing cycle are comprehensively addressed in this updated edition. The previous edition was published in 1995. The editors' stated purpose is to introduce complementary medicine to the practitioners who care for the childbearing woman and the woman herself, thereby increasing choices and research in this area. They succeed very well in meeting these worthy objectives by helping to fill the gap of scholarly work on not only complementary therapies but also on how their use can impact care during the childbearing cycle. The editors state the target audience is both the practitioner and the woman patient. The publisher has listed maternal child nurses and alternative therapy practitioners as the target audience. I agree with the editors. The contributors are all well qualified and credible authorities in their related areas. The philosophical basis and the overview of the principles of application, safety, efficacy, and limitations of over twelve commonly used complementary therapies are effectively addressed in this book. The editors are able to address such a large amount of material by succinctly pulling out the most important factors necessary for both the childbearing woman and her practitioner to know. The multitude of photographs and illustrations are most helpful. The largest shortcoming noted is the editors' persistent reference to the conditions of practice in the U.K., limiting the book's general appeal to a broader audience. This is a high quality, much needed book in the field, as I know of no other referenced text in which so many complementary modalities for use in the childbearingcycle are addressed. This second edition is justified because of the rapidly growing knowledge base in alternative therapies as more creditable research is performed and the increased interest and patient usage of these therapies are recognized by healthcare providers.

Audience: The editors state the target audience is both the practitioner and the woman patient. The publisher has listed maternal child nurses and alternative therapy practitioners as the target audience. I agree with the editors. The contributors are all well qualified and credible authorities in their related areas.
