The aim of this book is to provide foundational and essential, evidence-based knowledge for midwifery practice. Theoretical and practical perspectives are used to discuss the provision of safe, high-quality professional care to women, babies and their families. Standards for pre-registration midwifery education (NMC 2009) insist student midwives need to be prepared to demonstrate competence and sound knowledge to practice safely and effectively so that, at the point of registration they can assume full responsibility and accountability to undertake the role and responsibilities of a midwife. This book brings together knowledge from a collection of clinical experts and experienced academics to support student’s leaning and prepare them for the challenges faced in contemporary midwifery healthcare. There is a good balance between theory and its application to practice using numerous illustrations figures, tables, and interactive text to provide clear insight into the fundamentals of midwifery practice. Each chapter’s content is preceded by learning outcomes and an introduction with key points, conclusion, glossary and an extensive reference list at the end. The book is interspersed with student-friendly teaching methods throughout, including: clinical considerations, activities and further reading to encourage in-depth learning, reflection and critical discussion
