This is Volume 4 in the Midwifery: best practice series. Each of the volumes in this Series is built around the familiar core of four main topic areas relevant to midwifery (pregnancy, labour / birth, postnatal and stories / reflection) but also includes a number of “focus on…” sections. These are different in each volume and reflect a wide range of key and topical issues within midwifery. Each volume builds upon the others to provide a comprehensive library of articles that shows the development of thought in key midwifery areas. Volume 4 offers a range of wholly new topic areas within the “focus on…” sections, including “communities of women”, “birth centres” and “exploring diversity”.



The fourth volume of Midwifery: Best Practice will include:

· 37 articles from The Practising Midwife (2003).

· 5 research articles from Midwifery (2003).

· 7 articles from The Journal of Midwifery and Women's Health (2001-02)

· 5 original articles commissioned for this book.

These articles will be grouped into nine sections, and each of the main sections will, as before, include a brief editorial introduction and a ‘summing up' which will include ideas of how to turn reading into professional development activities.

1) Women and Midwives
2) Focus On ... Diversity
3) Pregnancy
4) Focus On ... Building Communities of Women
5) Labour and Birth
