This volume offers a comprehensive guide to the principles and practice of complementary therapies, and their application to expectant and new mothers and their babies. For each therapy the history and background are given, using a specifically midwifery perspective. Contemporary research has been included, as with more research now available than ever before, the midwife has to be able to make accurate assessments based on evidence. Legislative and professional conduct issues are covered, putting the information into a clear midwifery context and giving guidelines to enable the midwife to deal confidently with new therapeutic approaches.
