    Book Reviews

    A Book Review excerpt from New Zealand College of Midwives (NZCOM), Midwifery News, Issue 93, June 2019

    "This Australasian textbook has been the definitive midwifery text for midwifery students in New Zealand since first published in 2006. This 4th edition, endorsed by the NZCOM and the Australian College of Midwives (ACM), has been significantly revised and restructured to ensure it continues to reflect current midwifery practice. The new print format is produced as two separate books which makes it more manageable and accessible than previous editions. Book 1 focuses on the context of midwifery practice and Book 2 focuses on midwifery practice.

    Feedback from colleagues and students is they are enjoying the two volumes. Some of the comments have been: "Much easier to transport and 'dip in and out of'"; "Very readable and easy to apply to practice". Love the critical thinking exercises, up to the minute research and the coloured pictures".

    This is a must have text for students, midwives or anyone interested in finding out more about maternity care whether in Australasia or globally."
