White dated in some areas (current guidelines are easily available) this book is invaluable for midwives and midwifery students. It is clear and concise. It is elegant in it's use of the midwifery management process for each area of primary care. It is particularly useful in helping student midwives to embrace primary care in their practice. It is my sincere hope that a new edition will be forthcoming.
