Contexts of Midwifery Practice, Hardback Book

Description

In order to become skilled and competent practitioners, student midwives need to understand the complex individual, family and societal issues they will encounter.

By introducing the contemporary context of midwifery practice, this book helps students to understand the problems many women face in society. The book covers topics including violence, mental and sexual health, the rising obesity epidemic and increases in numbers of women from non-UK countries.

The authors emphasise the fact that students need to be aware of their public health responsibilities and discuss various health promotion strategies.
