The Midwife's Pocket Formulary: Commonly prescribed drugs for mother and child, drugs and breastfeeding, contra indications and side effects

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant resource, 13 Nov. 2008
This is an invaluable resource for any midwife or student midwife to carry around to dip in to when needed. This book assumes a certain degree of knowledge about anatomy and physiology, pregnancy, and the metabolism of drugs but all medical abreviations used are laid out in a glossary of terms at the beginning.

Drugs are grouped by type and each drug is explored in a very well laid out and logical way detailing both generic and trade names, preparations, doses, contraindications, side effects, interactions as well as an excellent midwifery-centred fetal risk and breastfeeding section for each drug.

Finally, a short and simple reminder of drug calculations as a final chapter makes this a work bag essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful read, 13 Nov. 2008
This review is from: Lucia, Lucia (Paperback)
This book is, at it's heart, a love story. Lucia is the only daughter in a large italian family living in 1950s Manhatten, and this novel explores their lives and loves. The story is absorbing and Lucia absolutely charming. Her job as a seamstress influences the way she sees the world, resulting in lyrical descriptions of her life and clothing, like a 1950s Carrie Bradshaw. A highly recommended read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant!, 13 Nov. 2008
I bought this book as a novice who wanted to use aromatherapy for the first time, and this book has been fantastic. Well laid out, full of illustrations and logically progresses through the history of aromatherapy, making your own blends and massage technique (including baby massage!). The second section explores different conditions and aromatherapy to suit these, before an alphabetical and comprehensive index of essentials oils. Most importantly, safety information is highlighted throughout as well as in a stand alone chapter, to keep you on the straight and narrow!

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining but ..., 13 Nov. 2008
Although I enjoyed around half of the entries and found them entertaining and often very touching, this book should come with a warning.... for all NHS staff who work outside of the ambulance service! While the author acknowledges that his comments are not meant to tar all NHS employees with the same brush, and definitely the shortages of staff put pressure on all, there are several occasions where doctors, nurses and midwives are made out to be rude and uncaring and often this book descends into ranting about these professional groups. While dipping in and out of a blog the odd rant is ok, I found that in a book form these frequent angry entries got in the way of the flow of an otherwise enjoyble book.

Lite-on 5045 Dual Format DVD Recorder with 160GB Hard Drive

1.0 out of 5 stars read before buying!, 31 Oct. 2006
I bought this DVD recorder as it seemed like good value for the amount of hard drive space. While I was happy for a few months I am now in the process of returning this item.

The set up and navigation are very easy and it does what it says on the tin...however, in the past 9 months the hard drive has wiped spontaneously 3 times and I have lost a lot of recorded material. The DVDs that I have burned using the machine now no longer read and a message pops up saying 'invalid disc', but they play on another DVD player I have! Finally, the actual DVD disc tray no longer works and needs a physical nudge to pop back in.

Very disappointing.
