Is the experience of childbirth becoming ''globalised''?
Is the encroachment of the western medical model dehumanising a profoundly human experience?
If so, what can midwives and midwife educators do about it?
These are the questions at the heart of Childbirth in the Global Village which highlights the role that globalisation plays in changing childbirth practices and its implications for midwifery practice and education.
Built around the vivid personal stories of women and midwives experiencing childbirth in four very different cultures
Childbirth in the Global Village will resonate with the experience of midwives everywhere and makes a strong case for redesigning the midwifery curriculum to reflect the interconnectedness of childbirth, midwifery education and practice around the globe.
From the Publisher:

In this new book, Dawn Hillier compares the experiences of mothers and midwives in America and England with those in Africa and Malaysia. Through vivid descriptions of actual births and careful examination of the local, national and international contexts in which they take place, she explores the roles of culture, policy and the academy in the promotion of political ideals about how human beings should come into this world. Childbirth in the Global Village will resonate with the experiences of midwives everywhere and makes a strong case for redesigning the midwifery curriculum to reflect the interconnectedness of childbirth, midwifery education and practice around the globe.
