I have only had this book a few weeks but it has been fantastic to help expand my knowledge. It's my 'go to' book now for most things, and allows me to understand the basics before reading more indepth in other books. Recommend this to all 1st year and aspiring midwives.
Didn't rate this book at first, but as I started my 18 month course in midwifery I found it very useful and have referenced in a few assignments-especially professional and ethical practice! I did originally buy to read prior to the course but I as I say I didn't rate it at first...definantly would now recommend!
I am applying to study Midwifery and this book has opened my eyes and if anything spurred me on. Brilliant book, very informative with little exercises for you to do throughout. Can be a little heavy going as it is more of a text book than anything else however extremely useful tool. Throughout the book the authors quote researchers for you to partake in further reading if you wish.
Would highly recommend this for anybody considering/mid way through a Midwifery course.
