This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. A first in Midwifery publishing! No other book advises midwives on the special needs of mothers with disabilities. Although an increasing number of women with disabilities are having children, the needs of this minority group are not always being effectively met.

Published Reviews "While the more common disabilities are discussed, such as visual or hearing impairments and intellectual disabilities, other disabilities are included which may not be so familiar but which midwives may encounter when caring for a woman or her partner. Suggestions for improving care at a service provision and individual level are discussed throughout using case scenarios and photographs of available equipment."
