Written with a team of midwifery specialists, this book provides effective techniques for alleviating pain during childbirth. Key topics include the physiology of pain in childbirth, antenatal and postnatal pain, pharmacological and non-pharmacological views on pain relief, psychology of pain relief, fetal and neonatal pain, and sociological and historical perspectives.


"Reading this well written book will encourage and challenge midwives to think about how they assist women to view pain as not just a negative experience ." Debra Bick, Research Fellow in Midwifery, University of Birmingham, MIDIRS Midwifery Digest Vol 1, Issue 1, March 2001
