  • Public health is emerging as one of the most important drivers in midwifery, and yet there are few textbooks that address the midwife’s role in public health. This book summarises the important developments in public health over recent years and will relate the recommendations to midwifery practice in a clear and easily understood manner. It highlights issues around health inequalities pertinent to maternity services and promotes individualised, non-judgmental approaches to care.

  • The evidence based medicine movement, which arose in McMaster University in Canada in the 1990s, has steadily grown to influence health-care professions other than medicine where it is recognised as evidence based practice. It is now widely accepted as a fundamental tenet where health care is available in developed country settings and the prevailing medical system is one of western medicine. The importance of evidence in defining policy and practice in the UK health system and others is acknowledged and, probably, enduring....

  • The care of a woman and her baby in the immediate hours, days and weeks following birth can make an enormous difference to their longterm health and well-being. The content and timing of postnatal care led by midwives was formalised in the United Kingdom following a statutory legislation that was first introduced in England in 1902. Then there were concerns that too many women were dying following birth.

  • The title for this book was chosen at a Midwifery Today1 conference held in Salem, Massachusetts. Three of the contributors to this book—Raymond DeVries, Eugene Declercq, and I—were conference speakers. Our talks on that sunshiny day in the fall of 1997 fit well with the conference theme of counteracting negative stereotypes of midwives.

  • This is a textbook written for all midwives. Midwives worldwide have a primary focus on pregnancy and birth in all types of settings. International concern for safe motherhood and the health and well-being of women builds on this core of midwifery. In the United States, the practice of midwifery encompasses the health care of women from puberty through senescence and from normal to high-risk, and the collaborative care of the medically or obstetrically complicated. To be with and provide care to women in all settings requires an extensive and in-depth knowledge base and skill competency.

  • The absorption of midwifery into medical practice is a recent process, a development linked in many western countries with the diminishing role of midwives, the increased involvement of the man-midwife, the general practitioner and the obstetrician in the birthing process and, in the twentieth century, the increased hospitalization of childbirth.

  • I would like to start by saying how pleased I am that Health Promotion in Midwifery has reached a second edition, the first having been more popular than my editors at Arnold or I had ever dreamed possible. The development of the principles and practices laid out in this second edition will enable midwives and other health professionals to keep health promotion at the forefront of their midwifery practice. The popularity of this, and other publications, demonstrates that midwifery and health promotion are very comfortable partners in the minds and hearts of midwives....

  • A student magazine asserts that a key action towards sustainability is ‘don’t have kids’ (Anon. 2008: 29). Another ‘green’ magazine for parents points out that ‘in the US, even having just one child creates a carbon legacy almost six times greater than each parent’s own lifetime carbon emissions’ (McAleer 2009). Sustainability and birthing human children are figured as mutually exclusive. So how do we get an edited collection of essays in a book with both the words ‘sustainability’ and ‘birth’ in the title?...

  • For five months now all people who read at all have been reading about the horrible war that is devastating Europe and shedding the best blood of the people of five great nations. In fact, they have had no time to read anything else, and everything that is published about it is seized upon with great avidity. No wonder, then, that Mr. James M. Beck's book, The Evidence in the Case, published by G. P. Putnam's Sons, which has grown out of the article by him contributed to the New York Times Sunday Magazine, has been warmly welcomed both here and in England as a...
