Drawing on years of midwifery experience of waterbirth, this collection of real life stories illuminates a rewarding way of birth and emphasises the theoretical knowledge, skills, understanding and resilience needed to practice well.

Waterbirth stories includes chapters on the criteria for use of water in labour and birth; the different stages of labour and on some more serious or unusual situations such as shoulder dystocia, postpartum haemorrhage, breech presentation and other unexpected maternal and neonatal events. Each chapter includes several stories from a midwife’s perspective, told in the context of evidence based guidelines available for this topic. The stories end with learning points to help readers reflect on their own practice.

Ideal for student and practising midwives with an interest in waterbirth, this research-informed book is enjoyable, challenging and informative.
