About the Author:

Anne Frye earned a BA in Holistic Midwifery in 1979. She has taught, written, and provided consultation services for midwives for the past 28 years. She has authored four textbooks written from the perspective of a midwife in homebirth practice. Her other titles include Understanding Diagnostic Tests in the Childbearing Year: A Holistic Approach, Holistic Midwifery: Vol. II: Care during Labor and Birth, and Healing Passage: A Midwife's Guide to the Care and Repair of the Tissues Involved in Birth (currently out of print and being revised).

Review:

All of use have had the experience of having a back-up physician reply to a question with, what does Williams' say? Now, we can all ask, what does Frye say? Anne Frye has gifted us with an absolutely priceless MIDWIFERY text. Anne is uniquely qualified to write such a book. I don't know a more conscientious researcher or educator. This work will have a profound effect on midwifery . . . and obstetrics . . . and obstetric nursing. The midwifery community has waited a long time for a definitive textbook, but Frye's cyclopedic Holistic Midwifery text was worth waiting for! It (along with Anne's other books), is now a primary, required textbook for The Apprentice Academics Midwifery Home Study Course. --Carla Hartley, Director, Ancient Art Midwifery Institute

As an experienced nurse-midwife and educator, I am delighted to find a text that covers such an extensive range of material in such a straightforward way. Holistic Midwifery articulates the biophysical and clinical details needed by aspiring midwives in their scramble for skills, covers a broad range of holistic and alternative health care modalities, and provides the educator with a wonderful teaching resource. The information is both sensible and well researched. It has enlightened me on issues I thought I understood, clarified issues that were hazy, and caused me to question beliefs and methods I had felt to be true. This text will be an excellent resource for the beginning midwife, advanced practitioner, and educator. --Polly Malby, CNM, Retired Professor, Oregon Health Sci. University

In presenting a midwifery standard of care that is valid in its own right, Holistic Midwifery makes an invaluable contribution to the world, to birthing women, and to the health care community. . . . It documents that midwives, educated through a variety of routes, can and do offer excellent, skilled, and knowledgeable care; a quality of care so high, in fact, that it constitutes a challenge to technomedical practitioners to see if they can match the standards set by independent midwives. --Robbie Davis Floyd, PhD anthropology, from her Forward
