More and more women are accessing complementary therapies through their pregnancy and birth and it is essential that midwives are up to date with the current evidence to support women with safe choices. Denise Tiran is a midwife with many years of expertise in complementary therapies and this text will be a valuable resource for midwives and students.

What a great book. The integrated conditions-based approach is readily applicable to practice, and will help readers to develop or enhance their understanding of how integration of complementary therapies into maternity practice can enhance outcomes and experiences for women.

'As a midwife leading the way to raise the status of complementary therapy in maternity care, Tiran's latest book is a welcome addition to this growing body of knowledge, and is the culmination (but hopefully not the conclusion) of more than two decades of contributing to midwifery literature. This is a resource for midwives and birth workers, broken down into clear chapters, including common therapies, professional issues and useful topics such as back pain in pregnancy and therapies for post-dates pregnancy. ... Tiran doesn't just list the range of therapies available; she also synthesises the comparative uses and weighs up the evidence in a way that empowers midwives to consider therapies according to clinical need and make professional judgements on their use.'
