A research-based, up-to-the minute account of the current status of antenatal education, focusing on the key challenges it faces in the future, offering suggestions for how these challenges might best be met. It describes some innovative approaches to accessing vulnerable groups of parents and how collaboration between the statutory and voluntary sectors might result in a better educational service for pregnant women and their families. Narratives from parents are analysed and commented upon, and underpinning the book will be an account of how the principles and practices of adult education should inform antenatal education.
- Demonstrates the potential for antenatal education to make a positive impact on women’s experience of birth
- Points the way to accessing new sources of funding for antenatal classes
- Illustrates new teaching strategies with the aim of accessing groups of parents currently not involved with antenatal education
- Aims to show how antenatal education can be a central, rather than peripheral part of the holistic care provided to pregnant women and their families
This is a second-hand book: paperback version. Cover marked and creased, but otherwise fairly good condition. I used to use this as a library book for my course attendees to borrow, so there is a Property Of sticker inside the front cover. I haven’t removed this because the only time I tried, the book became damaged.
