Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A great deal is now known about the effects of care given and received during pregnancy and childbirth. In order to best understand and utilize this information, pregnant women and all those involved in caring for them need an accessible, comprehensive reference to explain the methods and importance of proper care. A Guide to Effective Care in Pregnancy and Childbirth, Second Edition fills that need. The first edition was published to huge critical acclaim and immediately became established as the `bible' for all members of the perinatal care team because its conclusions were based on sound evidence. In the five years since the first edition of this best-selling guidebook was published, new research has been conducted on the effects of care during pregnancy and childbirth. The results of these important studies have been incorporated into this fully updated second edition.

The book systematically reviews more than 7,000 of the best clinical research studies and classifies all the elements of care as effective, promising, not proven either way, or not worth using. It covers basic care, diet, screening tests, complications during pregnancy and childbirth, care after childbirth and much more. All of the information is presented in an easily readable form, making it the standard practical guide for expectant parents and all those involved in the care of childbearing women.

Book News Annotation:

Synthesizes into a single handy volume the conclusions reached by larger publications for use by anyone involved in the care of childbearing women. The first edition was published in 1989; the 1995 second won the British Medical Association's Medical Book Competition for primary care. The third incorporates new findings resulting from continuing research and observation. It covers basic care, screening, pregnancy problems, childbirth, problems during childbirth, techniques of induction and operative delivery, and care after childbirth. References are to the larger works rather than to the primary literature.

The product of a decade of research, this volume provides careful analysis of over 3000 clinical research studies on the effects of care given and received during pregnancy and childbirth. The findings are presented in an easily accessible format that will be of use to all health professionals involved in the care of women and their babies, and the women themselves. A unique, easily readable text, this book offers a wealth of current information in a convenient, inexpensive format.

Synopsis:

A Guide to Effective Care in Pregnancy and Childbirth is a clearly written review of the important research evidence on the effects of the various care practices carried out during pregnancy, childbirth, and the early days after birth. In addition to the details provided in the text, the book concludes with valuable tables that list the practices which are beneficial, those of unknown effectiveness, and those likely to be ineffective or harmful.
