This popular book has been fully updated to incorporate new knowledge and guidelines, and has a stronger focus on diversity.

The complexities of this fundamental topic area are explained with boxes of key points, full colour diagrams and images, and tips on applying content to practice, making this book a must-have for students and practising midwives alike.
