Second stage is exciting for both mother and midwife. It marks the passage of the baby into our world. While first stage may take a long time, second stage is usually much shorter. During this time there are many forces at work.
This book will help you learn what second stage really is, and will show you how to keep your faith in the process. It will also explain how to best serve your women at this crucial stage. Our expert practitioners reveal their observations on when to push, what works and choices available for the mother.
The medicalization of second stage is explained with comparisons made about home vs. hospital standards of care. You will learn both how we can help protect women from interventions and appropriate interventions if complications should arise.
Many birth stories are woven into the pages of this booklet--stories that let you see the second stage of labor through the midwives' eyes and experience various situations that may occur. As you read these stories, you will feel you are there! The booklet also includes many tricks of the trade that have been gathered from years of experience. They are pearls of wisdom not to be missed.
