Product description

Midwives and other healthcare providers are grappling with the issue of rising intervention rates in childbirth and trying to identify ways to reverse the trend. It is increasingly accepted that intervention in childbirth has long-term consequences for women and their children. "Birth Territory" provides practical, evidence-based ideas for restructuring the birth territory to facilitate normal birth.
