A Midwife's Handbook is designed to provide nurse midwives with quick access to important clinical information. Within each chapter, topics are arranged alphabetically to further ease the access of the information. The overall objective of this handbook is to provide information for the practitioner that is detailed, generally has not been memorized, or that discusses issues which are encountered infrequently enough that a quick review of the details is helpful when the situation arises. Nurse-midwifery management guidelines are included throughout, such as when to manage independently or when to consult with the physician. This outstanding new resource will also integrate alternative and complementary therapies along with key medical information specific to midwifery practice to provide practitioners with the complete care alternatives.
