Résumé (français)  :

A Guide to Effective Care in Pregnancy and Childbirth (Guide des soins efficaces pendant la grossesse et l’accouchement) est un résumé des meilleures études disponibles sur les pratiques spécifiques à la maternité.

La thèse sous-jacente de cet ouvrage est que les preuves établies par des comparaisons contrôlées fournissent la meilleure base pour choisir parmi les différentes formes de soins pendant la grossesse et l’accouchement. Ces preuves devraient encourager l’adoption des mesures utiles et l’abandon de celles qui sont inutiles ou nuisibles.

Abstract (English)  :

A Guide to Effective Care in Pregnancy and Childbirth is an overview of results of the best available research about effects of specific maternity practices.

The underlying thesis of this book is that evidence from well-controlled comparisons provides the best basis for choosing among alternative forms of care in pregnancy and childbirth. This evidence should encourage the adoption of useful measures and the abandonment of those that are useless or harmful.
