Effective care in pregnancy and childbirth

Author(s)A.L. Cochrane, I. Chalmers, M. Enkin, MJNC Keirse
AbstractBased on systematic reviews of the research literature, "A Guide to effective care in pregnancy and childbirth" summarizes the most authoritative evidence available on the effects of care practices carried out during pregnancy, childbirth, and after the baby is born. Written in a clear and readily accessible manner, it will be invaluable to anyone involved in the care of pregnant women and to expectant parents themselves. The book concludes with tables listing practices which are clearly beneficial, those which appear to be promising, those of unknown effectiveness, and those likely to be ineffective or harmful." It is not specific to low-resource settings
