Here’s a chance to get your hands on some great giveaways with our free prize draws.

WIN one of 10 pairs of Cherry Blossom’s premium leather footbeds
Give your feet a well-earned break with Cherry Blossom’s footbeds. Now you never have to worry about sore feet, blisters and that awful burning sensation, which makes you feel so miserable and uncomfortable.

Made from high-quality, vegetable tanned PVC-free leather, Cherry Blossom’s leather footbeds provide excellent ventilation, allowing feet to breathe. The activated carbon filter prevents foot odour, the dimpled lower surface stops feet from slipping, and the substantial heel and arch support relieves pressure. They also support posture while standing and activate muscles while walking.

WIN one of three copies of Midwifery Practice: Case Book Critical Illness, Complications and Emergencies
Part of a case book series, this book contains 14 common pregnancy and childbirth emergency scenarios to help prepare student midwives for life in practice. Each case explores and explains the pathology, pharmacology and care principles, and uses test questions and answers to help assess learning. The practical cases link theory to practice and their grounding in reality help bring midwifery to life. 

The book covers the principles, pathology and skills involved in a range of birthing scenarios, acts as a useful aide-mémoire when simulating managing care procedures and demonstrates the importance of inter-professional team-working in problem-solving. Throughout, it uses tables, diagrams and text boxes, which make useful reference points.

Midwifery Practice (ISBN: 9780335242733) is published by Open University Press.

Mayes’ Midwifery is an established key textbook for students and qualified midwives.

Added benefits are the availability of a variety of additional online resources for each chapter, including case studies, video and website links, and a bank of multiple-choice questions to test knowledge.

With a strong emphasis on normal birth, the book covers the spectrum of midwifery-related topics applied to practice, providing a foundation of knowledge and encouraging independent thought through the use of reflective exercises in each chapter and online. The book provides midwives with material that meets individual ways of learning and supports current modes of midwifery education.
