Trade paperback book | $39.95

This comprehensive resource on complementary therapies in maternity care addresses how midwives and other birth professionals can use or advise on complementary therapies for pregnant, labouring and new mothers.

As midwives and doulas increasingly incorporate complementary therapies into their care of women during pregnancy and birth, it is vital that they have access to the latest evidence and guidance on safe and appropriate use.  This evidence-based textbook covers therapies including acupuncture, herbal medicine, homeopathy, aromatherapy, reflexology, yoga, massage and hypnosis.

Praise for Complementary Therapies in Maternity Care

"Denise Tiran is a midwife with many years of expertise in complementary therapies and this text will be a valuable resource for midwives and students."

     Gail Johnson RM, MA SPXM, PGDip Ed, co-editor of Mayes Midwifery, 15th Edition


"What a great book. The integrated conditions-based approach is readily applicable to practice, adn will help readers to develop or enhance their understanding of how integration of complementary therapies into maternity practice can enhance outcomes and experiences for women."

     Charlotte Kenyon, Lead Midwife Educator, University of Huddersfield
