Now available for the first time in full colour, the 15th edition of Mayes Midwifery retains all of the features that characterised the success of earlier editions - authority, accessibility and comprehensiveness - while addressing the wider context of current midwifery practice by applying evidence into practice.
The book explores anatomy and applied physiology, a wide range of public health issues, as well as cultural competence. Fast moving areas such as professional and leadership issues, fertility control, genetics, foetal development, medical problems in pregnancy and care of the new born and baby with complex needs are brought right up to date.
The latest edition of Mayes' Midwifery has also been redesigned to further assist with engagement of the topics while the artwork programme has been upgraded to help with the understanding of complex physiological processes. As with the previous edition, the book also comes with an associated website containing over 600 MCQs, case studies, and reflective activities together with a wealth of other learning tools.
Mayes' Midwifery 15th edition is an essential tool for midwives at every stage of their professional career - student midwives seeking knowledge, skills and guidance on their journey to becoming midwives - midwives returning to practice and for qualified midwives wherever they work. Nurses and health care assistants working on maternity units in the UK and overseas will also find the volume an important resource.
