Safer Childbirth? : A Critical History of Maternity Care Paperback
by Marjorie Tew
In the text's first edition, Marjorie Tew showed through her painstaking statistical analysis of perinatal mortality rates for hospital and home, that for some women hospital birth might actually be more dangerous than home birth.
These findings and further compelling evidence gathered by the House of Commons Health Committee in 1992 should have revolutionized the direction of maternity care.
This third edition considers the evidence on which the recommended changes in policy were made and the implications of implementing them.
