Rosemary Mander discusses the context of contemporary childbearing and analyses a range of political in the broadest sense issues which need to be understood and ad...dressed by those practising in a system of public maternity care, particularly the new midwife. Designed to help professionals cope with the transition from education and the ideals which brought them into health care to the reality of the system within which they learn and practise, this text includes successful strategies and lessons from which to learn. Drawing on recent and current international research, The Politics of Maternity demonstrates the commonality of the system-related challenges and develops some more constructive approaches to managing them, avoiding feelings of isolation and disengagement This inspiring book is designed to assist midwives to function and care effectively in a changing health care environment, rather than succumbing under pressure, for the benefit of mothers, babies and practitioners.Read more
