One of my favorite books

One of my favorite books

I needed something fast to write about today, so I thought I would share about one of my favorite pregnancy books.  It’s not what you would find on most expectant mother’s shelves, but it is certainly something anyone who works with expectant mothers should read.

The book?  A guide to effective care in pregnancy and childbirth. It details the research, which I think is nearly all from the Cochrane Collaboration, about pregnancy and childbirth in an attempt to define best practice in care.  The results are fascinating in some areas.  Want to know what I mean?  You can read it online at Childbirth Connection, and I recommend you start with the section of Diabetes.
