A detailed discussion about physiological and 'managed' third stage. 'Managed' third stage is very common in the UK. It involves the mother being given an injection to expel her placenta. Physiological (natural) birth of the placenta is when the woman gives birth to her placenta without any interventions. Women who want to do this are still often discouraged. This book considers the advantages and disadvantages, based on the research and women's and midwives' experiences. 115 pages, fully revised in 2011, containing the most up to date research on the third stage.
