Normal Midwifery Practice

Normal Midwifery Practice

October 2012 | 200 pages | Learning Matters
For new students the language and concepts of midwifery care can at first be daunting. This book helps students to understand the expectations of midwifery training in relation to normal midwifery practice. It covers the basics of midwifery care including professional practice, frameworks informing midwifery care, key concepts and philosophies of care, communication and care skills, antenatal care, normal labour and birth, postnatal care, neonatal care and breastfeeding, as well as a brief introduction to medicines management in normal midwifery care. The book is designed to work alongside first taught modules in midwifery, and underpin training in subsequent years.

Very helpful to look at birth from a slightly different perspective. Useful as a lecturer preparing presentations and also as we try to promote normality

This is a very easy to read text that covers the key elements of the first year of study on a midwifery programme, providing a framework on which to build upon during subsequent years.
I particularly like how the NMC standards for pre-registration midwifery education and the essential skills clusters are identified at the start of each chapter, allowing the student to see how these apply to the modules being studied.
