Product Description

From the Back Cover

The role of the midwife is varied, rewarding and challenging. Not only do midwives practice autonomously in a variety of settings, but they often take the lead role in more complex childbirth situations.


This book is the first labour and birth handbook written by experienced midwives and aimed specifically at practising midwives based in hospitals, the community and birthing centres. It details the most up–to–date information concerning midwifery care and offers guidance on how to deal with difficult and sometimes controversial situations. As well as this, The Midwife′s Labour and Birth Handbook contains a wealth of intrapartum support information, reference material and diagrams.

Format: Paperback
This is a great wee book which seems to cover every aspect of labour and birth. Yes it does go into a lot of the high-risk care and medicalised side of childbirth, but not without initially looking at the 'normal' side of birth (normal labour, homebirth and waterbirths have a chapter devoted to each them). Chapman writes clear to the point notes which are comprehensive without being wordy. Whats more she pulls on a good dose of fairly recent reference material to give it some guts. The lay out of each chapter into sub headings means it's easy on the eye and so so quick to find exactly the information you require when you need it, with some useful large illustrations to help. A really excellent book, as a 3rd year student midwife I wouldn't be without it and imagine I'll be using it as a reference book for quite some time to come.

I was introduced to this book by one of my students. The chapter on perineal repair is worth purchasing the book for alone. Its step by step, up to date, evidence based instructions are superior to anything I have seen elsewhere. This is one of those books I just find that I need.

Format: Paperback
I absolutely love this book! A real midwifery perspective and exploring all areas of labour and birth. The author considers a range of midwifery perspectives, including the more alternative midwifery viewpoints from the ARM etc. This book, although slightly older now is very good and still remains in my top 5 midwifery books. I would highly recommend reading this book!
