Amazon Review comments of previous edition

This book is so interesting. I originally purchased it to write an assignment but as I referred to it I would find another interesting bit and get lost in it for another 30 minutes. It will now be my new bible on the delivery suite!

If you are a midwifery student this book is completely worth getting. It is easy to read and explains CTGs in an understandable way. It helps a lot in practice on the acute wards!

This is a ‘must have’ for all midwives and doctors working in the labour ward environment. It is also an important learning tool for both midwifery and medical students.

This is an excellent book which really helped me with my interpretation of CTGs.

I would highly recommend this book. As a midwifery student I find this book - while detailed - very easy to follow.
