The importance of education in preparing women for childbirth.

Hollins Martin, Caroline J



This special edition offers unique insight into concepts of education within midwifery practice. One of the aims of delivering midwifery education is to advance the evidence-base and improve the quality of maternity care provided by midwives. In addition, childbearing women require accurate, accessible, evidence-based information from which to make decisions about their care. Pivotal to this approach is providing accurate information on which midwives can base their clinical decisions.
