Midwifery: Preparation for Practice 3e is the definitive midwifery text for Australian and New Zealand midwifery students.

The third edition continues to reinforce the established principles of midwifery philosophy and practice-that of working in partnership with women and midwifery autonomy in practice and from this perspective, presents the midwife as a primary healthcare practitioner.

It carefully examines the very different maternity care systems in Australia and New Zealand, exploring both autonomous and collaborative practice and importantly documents the recent reforms in Australian midwifery practice.

Midwifery: Preparation for Practice 3e places women and their babies safely at the centre of midwifery practice and will guide, inform and inspire midwifery students, recent graduates and experienced midwives alike.
