If you attend birth in homes and birth centers, you'll seldom encounter emergencies, but when crisis occurs, lives hang in the balance! It is difficult to remain proficient in skills so seldom practiced, yet pregnant women rely on your expertise in an emergency.
Birth Emergency Skills Training: Manual for Out-of-Hospital Midwives is the interface between the world of midwifery and the world of medicine. It takes you from the initial steps of intervention though definitive care, balancing a friendly tone and visual appeal with authoritative and clinically useful information. You'll find mnemonics and other memory aids, as well as the author's artful drawings and photography.
