'I would recommend this text to new student midwives - the book is a good resource to support student learning from practice - especially the reflective activities asking the reader to consider experiences from placement. It is supplemented by suggested answers to tasks presented and so helpful for the year 1 student midwife' - Celia Yeardley, Faculty of Health and Wellbeing, Midwifery, Sheffield Hallam University
