This new edition of a groundbreaking text combines classic and current research with the experience of an eclectic group of contributors. Combining definitive works from the previous edition with new chapters on innovative midwifery practice, this book is woven with examples from a full range of birth circumstances, from mothers in poverty to those at high obstetric risk. It presents perspectives from both sides of the connection, exploring the subjective, cultural and practical obstacles to a mutually rewarding birth experience. This edition has been fully revised and expanded to reflect key developments in midwifery philosophy over the past decade, applying a theoretical approach to emerging concepts such as emotional labour and midwifery partnership. Drawing on research from seven different countries along with experiences of birth in NHS, independent and community-based settings, this essential text reaffirms the fragility and the power of the relationship between midwife and mother.
