  • 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 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.

  • This is an exciting and timely book. It describes how nurses are pioneering complementary therapies within the medical system to give comfort and healing to their patients. It is 40 years since I graduated from general nursing training at Prince Henry’s Hospital Melbourne with deep disappointment about the medical model of 1960. Perhaps my greatest concern was that nurses had insufficient opportunity and resources to give true caring to their patients.

  • 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....

  • The past five years have seen an acceleration in the development of competencies in different health professional fields, including medicine, nursing, midwifery, and public health. Many of these efforts have been driven by the professional organizations themselves, in an attempt to define expected knowledge, skills and behaviors of graduate practitioners. While making important contributions, many fall short of a fully implemented CBE model often because of a focus on learning objectives that do not align with how a true competency is defined. ...

  • Midwives’ unique contribution to public health is that they work with women and their partners and families throughout pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period to provide safe, holistic care.

  • Significant progress has been made in recent years in increasing the production of health workers and in producing a multi-purpose nursing cadre that is able to perform both nursing and midwifery tasks. Availability of data on the public sector health workforce has also improved. A comprehensive HRH policy and strategy to address priority HRH constraints is in place, although its implementation needs to improve. Another encouraging development is the recognition of the need for human resource management and leadership training.
