This edited collection - one of a kind in its field - addresses the theoretical and practical implications facing representations of midwifery and media.  Bringing together international scholars and practitioners, this succinct volume offers a cross-disciplinary discussion regarding the role of media in childbirth, midwifery and pregnancy representation. One chapter critiques the provision and dissemination of health information and promotional materials in a suburban antenatal clinic, while others are devoted to specific forms of media - television, the press, social media – looking at how each contribute to women’s perceptions and anxieties with regard to childbirth.
