Description : Evidence based practice is now widely accepted as a fundamental tenet of midwifery. The importance of evidence in defining midwifery policy and practice in the UK health system, and others, is acknowledged and enduring. While the development and evaluation of research in midwifery is well charted, the question of how such evidence is incorporated into practice has, to date, received less attention and discussion in the midwifery profession. Answering this need, Evidence Based Midwifery focuses on the dissemination and use of evidence for midwifery practice, and explores midwives’ experiences in using the evidence base to inform policy and enhance clinical practice. Written by a highly-regarded and diverse group from the UK and international midwifery community, Evidence Based Midwifery addresses issues of relevance to all midwives whether clinical practitioners or educators, students or supervisors, researchers or managers. Issues that influence evidence based midwifery are discussed, and topics covered include problem based learning, implementation of evidence based guidelines and the involvement of service users. Edited by founder members of the Evidence Based Midwifery Network International collaboration with contributions from the UK, Greece, Canada and the Netherlands Primary focus on the incorporation of evidence into midwifery practice Real-life examples throughout

Not illustrated. 1899. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER III. FEMALE ORGANS OF GENERATION. The organs of generation in the female are divided into external and internal. The vaginal canal may be said to connect the two. The external ones lie outside the pelvis on the surface of the body, while the vagina and internal ones lie within the cavity of the true pelvis. Fig. 3--External Genitals of Virgin, with Hymen. (Playfair.) a. Labium Majus. d. Glans of the Clitoris. //. Labium Minus. e. Vestibule, just above the Urethra Openin c. Prepuce of the Clitoris, f. Mons Veneris. Collectively, the external organs are known as the pudenda or vulva (Fig. 3), and are made up of the mons veneris, the labia majora or greater lips, the labia minora or lesser lips, the clitoris, the meatus urinarius or opening of the urethra, the hymen when present, or its remains, the carunculae myrtiformes, the fourchette, and the orifice of the vagina. The mons veneris, which is usually covered with hair in the adult, lies immediately over the symphysis pubis. Running down from it on each side of the opening of the vulva, are the two larger lips or labia niajora. They meet behind in the posterior commisure or fourchette. They consist of skin, and their outer surfaces are covered with hair. Beneath the two larger lips, and entirely concealed by them in young women, are the two lesser lips or labia minora (also known as the nymphae). They join together in front and go to form part of a small elevation known as the clitoris. Below the clitoris, and bounded on each side by the labia minora, is a smooth triangular space called the vestibule. In the centre of the base of this space and about one inch below the clitoris, is the opening of the urethra or the meatus urinarius. This opening is immediately under the symphysis pubis, and its exa...
