The book itself seems great, but did not meet my needs. It looks at evidence-based practices in midwifery but only covers intrapartum practice.

Comprehensive, well organized discussion of the evidence around childbearing practices in the U.S. with excellent discussion of best practices for midwives. Case studies are well done.
