Better Births: The Midwife 'with Woman' provides readers with an in-depth understanding of the fundamental concepts at the heart of all midwifery practice. Written for student midwives and qualified practitioners alike, this evidence-based textbook examines what it means to be 'with woman' from a range of perspectives, in a variety of contexts, and in diverse areas of practice. Based on Rodgers' evolutionary concept analysis--the theoretical approach to developing knowledge in nursing science--this authoritative resource systematically examines and analyses the most recent literature and evidence, presenting findings of high relevance to midwives and childbearing women with contributions from international experts.
* Introduces the concept of being 'with woman' and explains the evolutionary concept analysis approach
* Provides insights on the relationship between woman and midwife and on fulfilling the 'with woman' concept
* Reviews contemporary literature to identify new knowledge and generate questions about the concept
* Includes discussion of global and historical perspectives, high risk midwifery, mental health issues, supporting the bereaved woman, delivering nurturing care to the older childbearing woman, midwifery education, public health, the future of midwifery, and more

Better Births is essential reading for undergraduate and graduate students in midwifery programmes, scholars and educators in the field, sociologists and researchers in related disciplines, and general readers interested in women's position in society, birth and motherhood, and feminism.
