Abstract

This textbook answers three important questions and shows how sociology can inform the practice of midwifery in the twenty-first century. It provides a comprehensive, jargon-free introduction to sociology for midwifery students with no prior knowledge of the subject, as well as practising midwives with experience of sociological issues in their daily work. It provides enough depth to meet the needs of those with some background in the field. At every stage the links between sociology and everyday practice are emphasized and explained, using case studies and examples. The book provides clearly defined learning aims and objectives, structured activities and questions for discussion, a glossary of key sociological concepts and annotated suggestions for further reading.
