About this product
- DescriptionIt astounds the western world that such a highly industrialized nation as the Netherlands, with all the resources of modern medicine and techlogy, has a marked preference for home birth assisted by midwives. Van der Mark examines Dutch attitudes and practices surrounding birth from a sociohistorical point of view, explaining the importance of ideological consensus, the private nature of the Dutch family, the high regard for comfort and well being, and the professional development of midwives as trained and licensed practitioners. This volume will be welcomed by those convinced of the value of low-intervention home birth, but it will also be of interest to practitioners who must rely on techlogical procedures to manage the birth process. Since the Dutch hold one of the world records of pregnancy outcome statistics, readers will be interested in the Dutch midwifery model described here by various contributors.
