Description

The complete textbook on complementary therapies in maternity care, this book addresses how midwives and other birth professionals can use or advise on complementary therapies for pregnant, labouring and new mothers.

Almost 90% of women may be using complementary therapies during pregnancy and birth, and increasingly midwives and doulas incorporate therapies into their care of women, so it is vital that they and other professionals in the maternity care field are aware of safe and appropriate use based on contemporary evidence. Therapies covered include acupuncture, herbal medicine, homeopathy, aromatherapy, reflexology, yoga, massage and hypnosis.

This complete guide to complementary therapies in pregnancy and childbirth covers safety, effectiveness, evidence, benefits and risks, legal, ethical and professional issues based on accurate and up-to-date research.

Reviews

'More and more women are accessing complementary therapies through their pregnancy and birth and it is essential that midwives are up to date with the current evidence to support women with safe choices. Denise Tiran is a midwife with many years of expertise in complementary therapies and this text will be a valuable resource for midwives and students.'
- Gail Johnson RM, MA DPSM, PGDip Ed, Co-editor Mayes’ Midwifery 15th Ed

'What a great book. The integrated conditions-based approach is readily applicable to practice, and will help readers to develop or enhance their understanding of how integration of complementary therapies into maternity practice can enhance outcomes and experiences for women.'
- Charlotte Kenyon, midwifery lecturer
