This fully revised and updated third edition of TheMidwife’s Labour and Birth Handbook is a practical andaccessible guide to midwifery care.

 

It addresses important questions such as:

 

  • Why are women being pressured into caesarean section for breechpresentation when the evidence is equivocal?

It challenges practice and guidelines whichare biased or based on poor evidence. Guidance is offered on how todeal with difficult, sometimes controversial, situations.
