Overview

Being a midwife today requires not only good clinical skills but also a broad understanding of the social and emotional adaptation to birth that a woman experiences. A midwife must be clinically skilled and able to bring "woman-centered" practice to life. This book explores all the issues that a midwife may encounter in applying her practical knowledge with sensitivity towards every individual woman's care, before, during, and after birth. Building on the changes that have occurred in midwifery in the past decade, THE NEW MIDWIFERY describes approaches to practice based on experience and supported by theory and biological sciences. This text is designed to help midwives build sensitive and supportive relationships, develop openness to individual needs, and be able to use science as a basis for practice.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nancy E. Moss, PhD, RN, MSN (University of Cincinnati School of Nursing)
Description: The multiple contributors to this text illustrate a new approach to midwifery care which maintains the art while enhancing evidence-based practice. The book is divided into three sections which are core to the new midwifery practice: effective and appropriate care, transition to parenting, and physical adaptation and growth in pregnancy, birth, and early life.
Purpose: The purpose is to illustrate new approaches to midwifery care in response to the changes occurring in practice and the educational level for entry into midwifery. These revolutionary changes bring the need for a new midwifery text, which these editors provide.
Audience: This book is appropriately written for student midwives and midwives studying for higher degrees or those ensuring their practice remains competent and current. The text would be of interest to other obstetrical healthcare providers as well to illustrate how practice can be personal while scientifically based. The editors and contributors are previously published and recognized names in their fields of expertise, giving credibility to this new text.
Features: The content is covered in three sections. In the first section on effective and appropriate care, the focus is on ensuring that care is beneficial and that harm is avoided. The second section, transition to parenting, is a description of childbearing as a social as well as a physical process. The third section, physical adaptation and growth in pregnancy, birth, and early life, contains information about the physiological adaptation to pregnancy from conception through the infant's early life.
Assessment: This book is different than others with the traditional approach to midwifery education and practice. The editors of this book bring an enhanced way of developing a more evidenced-based practice of midwifery to readers. This is a valuable book for all midwives practicing today with the current trends in healthcare toward higher education and research-based practice.
