This comprehensive resource on complementary therapies in maternity care addresses how midwives and other birth professionals can use or advise on complementary therapies for pregnant, labouring and new mothers.
As midwives and doulas increasingly incorporate complementary therapies into their care of women during pregnancy and birth, it is vital that they have access to the latest evidence and guidance on safe and appropriate use. This evidence-based textbook covers therapies including acupuncture, herbal medicine, homeopathy, aromatherapy, reflexology, yoga, massage and hypnosis.
