Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book demands the reader s recognition of their own culture and beliefs and leads in both a gentle and sometimes challenging way into an understanding of other people s cultural perspectives. It is an essential book for every student of midwifery whether at the beginning of their career or as part of their continuing learning within midwifery practice." Lea Jamieson, Head of Midwifery and Women s Health Studies, Nightingale Institute, King s College, London.
much of relevance for all health care professionals, irrespective of discipline. A real joy to review, this book is good, clearly written, and sensitive. Read it!" Trudy Stevens, Researcher Practitioner/Anthropologist, MIDIRS Midwifery Digest, September 1996
own beliefs have been challenged [by this book] and I have found it useful as a practising midwife. I therefore recommend the book for any health care library, and encourage readers to take time to read the book for maximum benefit."Inprint Multidisciplinary Health Journal, April 1996
this book is an excellent resource for those providing care in pregnancy and pregnancy loss. It would help those providing care to ensure they avoid indirect discrimination and provide the best possible information on specific cultures and religions, and would be an excellent reference source."Miscarriage Association, April 1999

Co-authors Schott and Henley (British health care trainers and developers) recommend techniques to enhance women's health care, meeting the multi-ethnic cultural, and religious needs of women and their partners. They discuss racial discrimination in health care, language and cultural differences, and the impact both have on pregnancy and related health issues. The volume also considers specific diseases such as AIDS and Tay-Sachs, and traditional cultural and religious practices among African-Caribbean, Chinese, Sikh, Rasta, Muslim, and Christian peoples.
