Summary "The third edition of The Labor Progress Handbook builds on the success of first two editions and remains an unparalleled resource on simple, non-invasive interventions to prevent or treat difficult labor. Retaining the hallmark features of previous editions, the book is logically organized by stage of labor to facilitate ease of use and replete with illustrations showing position, movements, and techniques. Features new to this edition include two new chapters on third and fourth stage labor management and low-technology interventions, additional information on massage techniques, and a complete analysis of directed versus spontaneous pushing. The authors have also updated references throughout, expertly weaving the highest level of evidence with years of experience in clinical practice. The Labor Progress Handbook, Third Edition continues to be a must-have resource for those involved in all aspects of birth by providing practical instruction on low-cost, low-risk interventions to manage and treat dystocia"--Provided by publisher.
