Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This ground breaking book examines spiritual care in midwifery practice. This offers the reader a new way of thinking about practice and how holistic, woman centred care can be achieved. I would have no hesitation in recommending this book to midwives both in clinical practice and education." Alison Brown, Midwifery Lecturer, British Journal of Midwifery, vol 10, February 2002
