Quick Overview

Heavily illustrated, clearly written, and developed with the participation of community-based midwives, midwifery trainers, and medical specialists around the world, it is equally useful in a rural village or urban clinic, as a training manual for students or as a reference for an experienced midwife

Product Description

Originally published in 1995, A Book for Midwives has proved a vital resource for practicing midwives and midwifery training programs around the world. The revised 2004 edition preserves the original book's clear language, medical accuracy, and focus on simple, low-cost treatments, but has been reorganized and extensively revised to better support care during labor and management of obstetric emergencies.

Chapters have been expanded and/or updated to cover lifesaving reproductive health information, and to recognize the broad role of midwives in providing women's health care.

Updated information includes:
HIV/AIDS in pregnancy and birth,
Breastfeeding,
infection prevention, and family planning,
pelvic exams,
IUD insertion and removal,
helping a woman when a pregnancy ends early,
manual vacuum aspiration.
