Managing Childbirth Emergencies in Community Settings

Managing Childbirth Emergencies in Community Settings (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Since the 1990s there has been growing emphasis on reducing obstetric intervention, supporting women's choices in childbirth and promoting normality. An increase in home birth and midwifery-led birth centres reflect this trend. Currently, there is little guidance for midwives managing childbirth emergencies outside the hospital and without immediate medical assistance. This timely book addresses the deficit and provides both clinical and professional guidance for midwifery practice. It will be a valuable resource for midwifery students, qualified midwives, supervisors of midwives and paramedics.
