"One of the joys of this book is Zita's ability to combine knowledge of the traditional western approach, essential for the confidence of those non-midwife acupuncturists, with the traditional eastern knowledge, essential for all practitioners, to produce a detailed 'how to' book. However, I would also recommend this book to midwives and student midwives in general. The terminology used in TCM is wonderfully evocative (the uterus is known as the 'envelope of Yin', and improving postnatal wellbeing may involve 'mother roasting'), yet also so alien sounding that many may dismiss this book as being of specialist interest only. Please don't! There is so much knowledge, and understanding of the underlying principle of holistic care, and the fundamental importance of all aspects of a mother's wellbeing before, during and after pregnancy, that it would be unfortunate if this book became purely a specialist tome."MIDIRS Digest
