Review:

Reviews of 1st edition:

"The important facts are laid out concisely, primarily focusing on management and using evidence-based guidelines for best midwifery practice." (The Obstetrician & Gynaecologist, 2010)

"A strength of this book is that it has an unashamedly simple at-a-glance format, easy to get used to. The chapters are based on the traditional systems approach with sections dealing with disorders and diseases...the important facts are laid out concisely, primarily focusing on management, using evidence based guidelines for best midwifery practice." (RCGP Journal, April 2010)

"This is an excellent book for use in the clinical arena by nurse midwives, nurses, and other healthcare practitioners caring for women with preexisting medical problems." (Doody's Reviews, June 2009)

"The editors highlight recognition of deviation from the normal as an essential component of midwifery and have provided a manual that will be appreciated by midwives in all areas of practice and will be of great value to students studying high-risk modules." (Midwives, April/May 2009)

"This book is a must have for any midwife, particularly those working in the community, clinics and in high-risk areas.... This book is an extremely useful reference tool. For students midwives it is an essential read when undertaking the 'complications' module of their course." (MIDIRS Midwifery Digest, January 2009)

I am currently a final year student midwife and can confidently say that this book has a simple with easy to read definitions of each disorder. It has clear details on the management in pregnancy, labour and following birth from a midwifery perspective - a must for any student midwife and a fantastic reference for all qualified midwives. (5* Amazon Review )

"This book is a long awaited text providing a comprehensive look at many of the medical conditions encountered by women during childbirth. Other texts with similar content have been recently produced but this text has the advantage of the information being presented in tabular format, thus making it easy to follow and an ideal reference tool. The care for each condition is broken down into pregnancy, labour and postnatal aspects and then presents expected care from the medical and midwifery perspective, although the reader will naturally have to apply any local policy for more specific care. The conditions are divided under logical headings and have been written by experienced professionals who have specialist knowledge in the field they are covering. There is also a welcome addition of a chapter covering addictive disorders and psychiatric disorders, both currently high on the agenda."
-Alison Edwards, Senior Midwifery Lecturer, Birmingham City University.

"Comprehensive coverage - systematic layout - extremely informative - simple and easy to understand language."
-Aine Kothari, Senior Lecturer, Anglia Ruskin University

"Easy to use and informative. Content relevant and up to date. Covers more topics than standard textbooks for midwives. Highly recommended."
-Lesley Daniels, Midwifery Lecturer, Leeds University

"A long-awaited text, providing succinct outlines of core required for wide range of commonly occurring conditions."
-Alison Edwards, Midwifery Lecturer, Birmingham City University

"Excellent book - contemporary, well organized and informative chapters well supported by tables. An excellent resource for midwives and students."
-Alison James, Midwifery Lecturer, Plymouth University
