This compact, portable text includes what to expect on each type of placement -whether it be working in a low or high risk environment-from how to prepare for practice, what you can anticipate whilst you're there, the key essential skills to acquire, and what pitfalls and problems to be aware of, and how to deal with them if they do arise. Each chapter contains `Top Tips' from current midwifery students, as well as real life student experiences and suggestions for further reading, making it the ideal companion for placement that no student midwife should be without.

Take the stress out of your midwifery placements with The Hands-on Guide!
