For over two decades, 'Heart & Hands' has been a beloved guide for both midwives and parents interested in the benefits of midwifery care.
This all-new fourth edition has been revised from start to finish, featuring updated material that emphasizes independent midwifery, physiologic (natural) birth, and the art of non-intervention. Midwifery expert Elizabeth Davis includes valuable hints for turning breech and posterior babies, mediating pain in labor, and supporting newborn physiology. Davis also reveals the keys to postpartum recovery, with practical tips on breast feeding for busy mothers.
Comprehensive and compassionate, 'Heart & Hands' remains a dog-eared classic for parents, midwives, and other birthing helpers.
