This publication is a fine piece of work written by a team of renowned, experienced authors working for many years in the field of midwifery in prestigious organizations such as the Royal College of Midwives (RCM) UK, Department of Interprofessional Health, Swansea University, UK and the ICM. The book has a wide focus on global midwifery, its milestones and its development including very useful resources to assist countries to adopt and transform midwifery education and practice, based on multiple sources of evidence. The book also gives direction to midwifery leaders, associations, teachers and students who are dedicated to midwifery development in their region. My recommendation and advice to midwifery leaders, students and teachers is to secure their copies for their personal and official use. A discounted purchase rate for the low-income countries is advisable.
