Pharmacology for Midwives is a unique text that focuses specifically on pharmacology during pregnancy and childbirth. Written in response to the ever increasing and changing responsibilities of midwives the text concentrates on the implications of long term medication during pregnancy and the drugs used during labour and delivery. This timely book meets the needs of midwives by providing detailed and comprehensive information in an easy-to-access format. It introduces the principles of pharmacology before reviewing the drugs prescribed in normal and abnormal practice. The authors go beyond the formularies by using case reports to explore the evidence underlying practice. Throughout the text applications of pharmacology to practice are highlighted and the implications of the research evidence for each major drug are presented in easy-to-use checklists and guidelines for clinical practice. Fully comprehensive and packed with handy checklists, guidelines and points for practice, this will be an essential resource for all students, practitioners and teachers of midwifery.
