I see this book generally with its wealth of information and good illustrations, as one which will empower pregnant women at a time when they are feeling vulnerable.

The reams of information in it would well prepare a woman before she sees her doctor –to get questions ready in advance of a visit.

Self-Preparation for Childbirth

“Self-Preparation for Childbirth“ is written in a lucid, authoritative and conversational style. Ms Murphy successfully brings her maternal, midwifery and teaching experience to bear on this well written, informative book. I would thoroughly recommend it to expectant mothers and their partners. Student midwives and medical students might also benefit from reading it before beginning their practical midwifery and obstetrical training.

Published by Tivenan Publications, Newcastlewest, County Limerick “Self-Preparation for Childbirth” is a bargain.
