About this item

This text/reference for midwives and health visitors covers both theory and practice. The first half of the book examines public health and the role of the midwife in health promotion. It offers an overview of health promotion models and approaches, discusses evaluation in health promotion, and considers aspects of behavior change. Later chapters are devoted to issues such as smoking and pregnancy, breastfeeding, sexual health, and the role of complementary and alternative medicine in health promotion. The book includes case studies, summary boxes, bullets, and practice points. This third edition is updated to reflect current practice in midwifery. It contains new chapters on healthy diet in pregnancy, pelvic floor health, and violence against women, as well as new material on obesity.
