Kurzbeschreibung Now in its Second Edition, Pain in Childbearing and its Control explores pregnancy, labour and puerperal pain, along with fetal and neonatal pain. As well as approaching the topic in considerable depth, the word is interpreted broadly. Throughout the text, research-based theoretical approaches to pain and pain control are presented within the context of care. Pain in Childbearing and its Control will be invaluable to midwives and a wide range of care providers who seek to assist the woman in coping with her experience of childbearing and any associated pain.
