            Strongest advocate, best friend, expert, cheerleader and chief photographer . . . Before, during and after labour the role of a midwife is second to none. The Secret Midwife reveals the highs and lows on the frontline of the maternity unit, from the mother that tries to give hers...elf a DIY caesarean to the baby born into witness protection, and from surprise infants that arrive down toilets to ones that turn up in the lift. But there is a problem; the system which is supposed to support the midwives and the women they care for is starting to crumble. Short-staffed, over worked and underappreciated - these crippling conditions are taking their toll on the dedicated staff doing their utmost to uphold our National Health Service, and the consequences are very serious indeed.

            Parent Education for the Critical 1000 Days

            As research in neuroscience increasingly points to the unparalleled influence of the first 1000 days of life from conception to two years of age in determining the baby's life trajectory, the need for high quality early parenting education delivered by knowledgeable and dedicated... professionals becomes ever more apparent. This book describes the global aims of early parenting education. It identifies the key areas that research suggests are important: building a relationship with the unborn and newborn baby; preparing for labour and birth; supporting parents' mental health; protecting the couple relationship across the transition to parenthood, and education for special groups such as same sex couples, women with fear of birth, prisoners, military wives and parents from BME backgrounds. All practitioners providing early parenting programmes - midwives, health visitors, family link workers, Children's Centre staff and voluntary sector teachers - will gain new ideas for their practice in this book. Students taking midwifery and early childhood courses will find much to support their studies. Ultimately, the book provides inspiration for all those who are committed to the role of parenting education in reducing social inequalities.

            Nurses and midwives have a professional responsibility to keep up-to-date with current research impacting on their clinical practice. They require the skills and knowledge to read and understand research reports, evaluate the quality of the research, synthesise different research... studies, apply the most appropriate findings into their clinical practice and be able to evaluate its effectiveness. This book presents a unique approach to teaching the principles of health research using practical case studies throughout with which students can identify and engage. The book covers core concepts and principles including: What evidence is and why understanding research is vital; Finding reliable sources of evidence; The nature of the research process; Understanding quantitative and qualitative research; Ethical considerations; and Using research to guide clinical practice. Throughout the book activities, summaries and review questions help ground theory into real life scenarios, highlighting how evidence-based practice can be applied in every aspect of nursing care. 'The text is highly readable while achieving the aim of familiarising the reader with the language of, and process for doing research. It is logically organised and ... guides reader learning using a variety of techniques that reinforce [the] information presented and challenge thinking.'
