Midwives and Safer Motherhood


MIDWIVES AND SAFER MOTHERHOOD draws its title from the Safe Motherhood Initiative (WHO, UNFPA, World Bank, 1987). This book provides a unique insight into the ways in which midwives may be involved in the achievement of safer motherhood, especially a reduction in maternal mortality and morbidity. Divided into four key areas, it explores: Research for Safer Motherhood, Midwives' Changing Roles, Midwifery Education, and The Midwifery Profession Internationally. The international team of contributors offers a rich and varied perspective on the changing role of midwives worldwide.
