A useful pocket companion for midwives and student midwives. Midwifery Essentials provides the essential facts, formulas and numeric values required in midwifery practice. It covers a wide range of topics from the antenatal period through to the postnatal period, with clearly explained and evidence based information.
There are tables (eg Apgar Scores), diagrams (eg descent of the fetal head and dilation of the cervix), and checklists for key time periods and issues. It is ‘splashproof’ so it can be wiped clean and ballpoint writing can be wiped off with an alcohol wipe and re-written.
Midwifery Essentials is written by two midwifery lecturers from the University of Technology in Sydney.
