The Art and Soul of Midwifery, Creativity in Practice, Education and Research

di Davies  • 2007  • dettagli prodotto


How does the midwife begin to bridge the divide between technician and nurturer? Midwifery claims to be a profession that combines both art and science, yet it is currently more ‘science’ than ‘art’ This title provides relevant theory and practical tools to enable midwives to begin to bridge this divide and explore alternative ways of thinking and being. The majority of the writers are midwives and midwife teachers who have spent several years exploring these issues in theory and practice, frequently from a unique perspective.
