Topics covered include midwives' career intentions, and men in midwifery. These studies illustrate the diversity of the research methods appropriate to midwifery, ranging from randomized controlled trials to evaluate the effects of clinical procedures, to detailed observational studies to describe interactions between midwives and women in their care.
Midwives, Research and childbirth is essential reading for all midwives - as students, practitioners, teachers and managers. It should also be of interest to other health professionals involved in the provision of maternity care, and members of social science disciplines concerned with issues of women's health.
This book should be of interest to trainee and qualified midwives, health visitors and nurse researchers.
