Skilled care during pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period is vital to the survival and health of mothers and new-borns. In fact, the wellbeing of a society is represented by the health of mothers, new-borns and children. To this end, the United Nations has determined that the number of births assisted by a skilled attendant is one of the indicators of progress in a country. This is a user-friendly, highly illustrated clinical manual developed to provide all midwives with up-to-date knowledge and practical skills. For ease of use, the book has been split into three parts: the antenatal months, the second and third stages of labour, and the postnatal period.These parts are split into modules, each one covering a specific topic, which contain: step-by-step instructions for carrying out procedures, along with a rationale for each; clinical tips drawn from years of midwifery experience; clear illustrations to demonstrate difficult procedures or concepts. The guide has been created to assist students of midwifery and as a continuing education resource for practicing midwives, tutors and medical students. The information within it is essential for the achievement of Millennium Development Goals four and five - the reduction of infant and maternal mortality and morbidity. It is an appropriate and timely guide for midwives today.
