Reviews of Midwifery Practice: A Research Based Approach: 'I opened this book with enthusiasm, pleased to find that a fourth volume had been added to the series. I had worried that by using the tripartite structure of antenatal, intrapartum and postnatal care the editors had limited the potential for a sequel to this accessible and challenging collection' - Nursing Times, December 1993 'The book is a valuable addition to the three already in the series and should be available to all midwives and midwifery students.' - Nursing Times, February 1994 This fifth volume in the immensely popular series introduces new topics of Midwifery Practice and revisits some topics already discussed in previous volumes. The accessible chapter structure remains the same and a broad range of research themes are presented across the three stages of midwifery practice. The guiding philosophy behind this series is to present research topics within the context of clinical practice and in this volume the editors have put together a subject range which will be of interest to all practicing midwives and students.
