This book explores the psychological aspects of pregnancy, childbirth, and early motherhood--an area usually overlooked in the perinatology literature. 20 multidisciplinary contributors discuss what parents and their children experience during this emotionally charged period. The result is a much-needed resource that will help health professionals to provide more supportive and empowering care.
"This book covers a breadth of issues within pregnancy, childbirth and the postnatal period exploring both old and new material to provide the reader with evidence on which to base practice. It should promote rich discussion among all that read it. I highly recommend this to all midwives at every stage of their career." Anne Viccars, MIDIRS Midwifery Digest, vol 8, no3, Sept 1998
