The wait is over! The updated second edition of A Pocket Guide to Clinical Midwifery: The Efficient Midwife has published. The must-have resource for midwives, women’s health nurse practitioners, and all levels of healthcare providers working in the women’s health field is organized alphabetically for easy reference, and features important concepts, diagnostic tools, algorithms, and management options, including conventional, lifestyle, and complementary therapies, all in one place.
The long-anticipated Second Edition has been completely updated and revised to offer current evidence-based references, the latest medication recommendations, and midwifery practice pearls. Also provided are recent changes to practice, such as FHR monitoring, hypertensive guidelines, contraception updates, prenatal care, LGBTQIA+ support, precepting, sexual health, and evidence-based practice.
Did you know that the authors conceived of the idea for A Pocket Guide to Clinical Midwifery while attending midwifery school at Yale University School of Nursing? They were assigned the task of creating a "black book" to serve as a quick reference for essential midwifery topics. They found the "black book" to be invaluable in clinical practice and eventually reached out to Jones & Bartlett Learning about publishing their little midwifery reference. Ten years ago the first edition of A Pocket Guide to Clinical Midwifery: The Efficient Midwife hit the market and hit the mark with midwifery students and professionals alike!
Along with authors Jessica Densmore and Lauren Dutton (Meredith Turner not pictured), we proudly debuted the Second Edition at the ACNM 64th Annual Meeting & Exhibition in National Harbor, Maryland to an eager crowd of midwives, women's health nurse practitioners, and ambitious students.
