Varney's Midwifery, Sixth Edition is the gold standard for midwifery practice. Completely updated and revised, this text reflects current evidence-based guidelines. The Sixth Edition addresses care of women throughout the lifespan, including primary care, gynecology, maternity care in a variety of settings, and newborn care. It also provides new content on social determinants of health, the changing face of the population, and the population that midwives serve. With chapters written by expert midwives with an emphasis on anatomy, physiology, and normal physiologic processes, this text will assist students and midwives in providing healthcare services today. Chapter appendices present essential skills that are designed to help students, midwives, and international readers learn skills that are core components of midwifery practice. These critical skills are evidence-based and include insertion of contraceptive devices, hand maneuvers for birth, management of a fetus in a breech presentation, and steps for managing postpartum hemorrhage. "Varney's Midwifery is a primary textbook used in midwifery education. The voices of authors from practices across the nation allow for a robust presentation of evidence-based midwifery. As society changes, and midwifery evolves, so does this textbook evolve, especially as illustrated by new content. This edition includes information that will enable midwives to provide evidence-based care within the context of shared decision making." - Editors Tekoa L. King, Mary C. Brucker, Kathryn Osborne, and Cecilia M. Jevitt
