Product description


‘[A] fascinating and full-bodied presentation of the emerging understanding of the impact of traumatic childbirth on mothers, fathers/partners, and providers…Traumatic Childbirth is a highly readable, compelling and comprehensive collection of research, practice, and perspective that speaks to the birth professional’s sensibilities.’Science and Sensibility

‘This book is an extraordinary resource for families and health professionals alike. I read far more of it at each sitting than I had planned because Traumatic Birth is a fascinating mix of clinical experiences, women's case studies, fathers' perspectives and research. The authors from the United States and New Zealand combine the expertise of a clinician, a researcher and a birth activist.’ cMidwifery News

'Traumatic Childbirth goes beyond the usual discussion of postpartum depression to address the lasting impact of traumatic childbirth on new mothers, and gathers academic, clinical and personal stories under one cover to address the implications of such births. From mother and father perspectives to impacts on breastfeeding, subsequent births, and more, this offers health professionals a fine guide to the latest information and research covering traumatic childbirth, and is a "must" for both health and women's issues collections alike.' – James A. Cox, Editor-in-Chief, Midwest Book Review, USA
