The use of warm water immersion throughout the birthing process is renowned for its physical and psychological benefits, yet waterbirth is still vastly underrepresented as a birthing method across the globe.

Now going into its second edition, Dianne Garland’s popular and authoritative text guides the reader through the clinical, practical and organisational considerations for delivery in water. Drawing on the author’s own extensive experience, the book explores:

·         the history and evolution of hydrotherapeutic theory

·         the specific skills and specialist care required for attending births in this setting

·         key research and debates surrounding the many aspects of waterbirth

·         practical guidance on engaging with parents when promoting waterbirth as an option.

 

From an internationally renowned and respected midwife, this new edition retains the personal and engaging style that made the first edition so popular. The book is enhanced with photos taken from the author’s own travels around the world, and features a wealth of interactive material – including an expansion of the Birth Story feature, whereby first-hand accounts of waterbirth from both mothers and practitioners worldwide provide an often moving conclusion to each chapter.

With a strong focus on developing practitioners’ knowledge and skills in this area, enabling them to confidently offer waterbirth as a safe and viable option, this classic text is an invaluable one-stop resource for anyone with academic, professional or personal interests in waterbirth.
