This book examines the relationships on which maternity care depends. Aspects of the midwife-mother relationship are examined, by midwives and mothers, using research findings and the distilled experience of respected clinicians. The relationships presented include those which have been established gradually over a long period as well as those which have been forged rapidly during labour. Problematic areas, such as the difficulties of communicating through an interpreter or sensitivities in relationships between mothers and childless midwives, are given appropriate consideration. This work includes examples of home and hospital births, independent and NHS practice, and perspectives from New Zealand as well as the United Kingdom. These many strands are brought together to identify what is fundamental to a good relationship between mother and midwife, how that relationship can prove powerful and how to prevent it from being undermined.

This U.K. book is written by Faye Thompson, who has thirty years experience as a midwife and educator. She studied philosophy and the humanities as an undergraduate in Australia, and now lectures on health care ethics. As a feminist, she seeks to reunite morality and personal interest so that the woman is not subordinated in women's health and childbirth practices. From this experience, she offers a framework of ethics specific to midwifery and derived from midwifery practice that takes ethical discourse beyond current literature, proposing strategies for ethical practice based on findings arising out of the profession itself.

"With empathy and keen insight, Sally Hepworth delivers a page-turning novel about the complex, lovely, and even heartbreaking relationships between mothers and daughters.—Emily Gifin Three generations of women Secrets in the present and from the past A captivating tale of life, loss, and love...Neva Bradley, a third-generation midwife, is determined to keep the details surrounding her own pregnancy—including the identity of the baby's father— hidden from her family and co-workers for as long as possible. Her mother, Grace, finds it impossible to let this secret rest. The more Grace prods, the tighter Neva holds to her story, and the more the lifelong differences between private, quiet Neva and open, gregarious Grace strain their relationship. For Floss, Neva's grandmother and a retired midwife, Neva's situation thrusts her back sixty years in time to a secret that eerily mirrors her granddaughter's—one which, if revealed, will have life-changing consequences for them all. As Neva's pregnancy progresses and speculation makes it harder and harder to conceal the truth, Floss wonders if hiding her own truth is ultimately more harmful than telling it. Will these women reveal their secrets and deal with the inevitable consequences? Or are some secrets best kept hidden?
