Summary "Education for birth and parenting is increasingly being downgraded or abandoned by many hospitals and Health Care Trusts. Why is it that pregnancy as a teachable moment is being ignored or overlooked and a rare, perhaps unique, opportunity to engage adults in evaluating their lifestyles and reflecting on their life choices is being lost?" "In their new book, Birth and Parenting Skills: New Directions in Antenatal Education, Mary Nolan and Julie Foster try to answer some of these questions. Joined by a wide range of contributors from education and health care, this groundbreaking new text describes innovative and effective practices from different parts of the country, demonstrating the potential for antenatal education to make a positive impact on women's and men's experiences of birth and early parenting."--BOOK JACKET
