Summary "This is the first book to explore public health from the perspective of the midwife and examines the midwife's role in maintaining and improving health from a more global and population-based focus. With contributions from leading academics and practising midwives, real life initiatives are discussed. Midwifery and Public Health provides clear guidance on identifying health needs and offers a sound knowledge base from which practitioners can develop and clearly demonstrate their significant contribution to public health care provision."--Jacket.
