For practitioners and trainees in obstetrics and gynecology, family practice, midwifery, and nursing, and childbirth educators and doulas in North America and the UK, Simkin (allied birth vocations, Bastyr U.), a physical therapist who specializes in childbirth education, and Ancheta, a doula trainer, doula, and childbirth educator, outline simple, non-invasive options to prevent or treat difficult labor. Emphasizing interventions to help maintain normal labor progress and manage and correct minor complications before they become serious, their approach is organized by labor stage, with assessment, diagnosis, actions, and b&w drawings showing position, movement, and manual techniques to improve fetal position and aid delivery. This edition has a new chapter on third and fourth stage labor management and low-technology interventions, an analysis of directed versus spontaneous pushing, and more information on massage techniques. The chapter on assessing progress has been updated to include the concept of belly mapping. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
