Aromatherapy is increasingly incorporated into midwifery practice, particularly in midwife-led units. It is the most commonly used therapy by midwives and birthing practitioners but access to up-to-date safety information is limited. Almost 90% of women may be using complementary therapies during pregnancy and birth and so it is very important that midwives are aware of safe and appropriate use based on contemporary evidence. This book covers safety, effectiveness, evidence, benefits and risks, and legal, ethical and professional issues related to incorporating aromatherapy into maternity care. Useful charts and tables are included for quick reference in clinical practice, making this is the ultimate handbook for using aromatherapy in midwifery practice. The scientific basis behind aromatherapy, including relevant anatomy and physiology, chemistry and pharmacology are covered, as well as a critical appraisal of the contemporary research evidence supporting the use of aromatherapy in maternity care. Essential oil profiles of the oils that can be safely used in pregnancy, birth and postnatally are also included.

Throughout history human beings have turned to natural means for treating illness. At the beginning of the third millennium, when medical knowledge has never been stronger, the interest in natural therapies continues to rise. The therapies described in this book include nutrition, aromatherapy, relaxation techniques, music therapy, pet therapy, therapeutic touch and massage. They can be used in nursing practice to induce relaxation, help create a healing environment, increase comfort, reduce pain and address troublesome symptoms, but they also have a role in empowering both nurses and patients to maintain their own health. Also significant is the improved professional satisfaction that often accompanies advanced nursing practice in complementary care. Pauline McCabe, known widely among Australian nurses and midwives for her skill and experience in the practice of complementary therapies, has gathered together a talented group of practitioners to write passionately about their particular specialties and experiences. All nurses and midwives will benefit from reading what those authors have to say.
