This book considers the broad range of support given to mothers including social, psychological and clinical. It also looks at the provision of this service and how different models have been set up internationally to fulfill this important function. It brings together the latest research findings, which examine the nature of care that is provided and consider what constitutes effective and efficient support.
This aspect of care is considered a crucial part of the increasing and expanding role of the midwife.
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.
Study Skills cover all those abilities that make it possible to cope with the demands
of academic and professional pursuits. For people just embarking on a course of
study they include being able to deal with all the intellectual, emotional and
social challenges that are part of the day-to-day demands of being a student.
Beyond the skills involved in coping are those that enable students to do well in
their chosen disciplines.

As health care providers, we spend our lives searching for treatments
that reduce suffering and lengthen the lives of our patients. Sometimes
we find solutions in surprising places. Although we all have hopes for
advancements in technology, the future of medicine is also about
challenging preconceptions as we change our healing biases. In many
ways, this is the natural evolution of “global medicine.” We have global
communications and global banking; however, until recently medicine
has remained remarkably provincial.
