Description - Psychology for Midwives by Maureen D. Raynor

"Psychology for Midwives" is an excellent aid in grasping the key concepts of psychology in a focused way, clearly demonstrating how the key concepts can be used within modern day midwifery practice settings. This is an easy to use, informative guide, with up to date sources of evidence." Kimberley Skinner, Student Midwife, Anglia Ruskin University, UK "Communication isn't just about giving information. It is about creating relationships. This book is studded with academic references, but can also help midwives understand and interact with their clients in a satisfying way." Sheila Kitzinger, Honorary Professor at Thames Valley University, UK "A well set out book comprising a comprehensive list of relevant contents ...Of particular note is the use of case vinaigrettes, stories, reflective activities and summaries of key points ...The content of the book reflect a range of contemporary theoretical approaches and subject areas." Maria Barrell, University of Northumbria, UK "This is an excellent book which focuses on the underlying psychological factors that influence and guide women through pregnancy, childbirth and puerperium. There are clear descriptions of relevant theories and current research, supported by case studies which offer real life insight into issues such as how women feel during and after pregnancy ...The book covers areas that will affect everyone such as the development of relationships and emotions, covering not only the women but their support networks including family and birth partners." Jane Mills, Student Midwife, Keele University, UK This accessible, evidence-based book explores how important it is for midwives to understand the psychological aspects of care, in order to create positive experiences for mothers and families. The book provides simple explanations for why psychological care matters in midwifery practice and uses different theoretical perspectives of psychology to illustrate how it fundamentally contributes to good midwifery practice. The book addresses many core concepts and principles of psychology, including: Mother-midwife relationship Emotions during the childbearing continuum Perinatal mental illness Communications in midwifery practice The birth environment Stress and anxiety Providing support to families Attachment and bonding Reflective questions, activities, illustrations, tables, summary boxes and a glossary help readers navigate the book. One of the first books of its kind, Psychology for Midwives is essential reading for all midwives, students and allied health care professionals interested in the psychological dimensions of childbearing.
