The Midwife-mother Relationship Reviews


'An interesting informative book that should be recommended at both pre-registration and past basic level.' - Mrs Marian McIvor, Uiversity of Wales Swansea 'I would highly recommend it for students and qualified midwives, as an essential thought-provoking analysis of a significant area of practice.' - Daniel O'Leary, Nursing Standard 'An excellent book! New, refreshing, stimulating.' - Tina Heptinstall, University of Greenwich 'An excellent text specifically geared to midwives. I shall recommend all my students have access to a copy. This book is long overdue and covers an under-estimated fundamental part of 'being a midwife'.' - Mrs J. Wright, University College Worcester
