I have two announcements to make today!! The first is that we are now in the final stages of publishing an update to the Induction: do I really need it? booklet that I first wrote for AIMS back in 2004. In fact, it has now been revised and expanded to the extent that it will have a new title and we have officially declared it to be a book rather than a booklet!! This book is written to be useful both for women (and, of course, their families) and professionals who want to better understand the issues around induction of labour, learn more about the processes involved and consider the evidence base relating to this area.
Writing a book with AIMS is always a collaborative journey, and the lovely women of the AIMS Committee have been working closely alongside me on this project. They are now midwifing it through the production and publication process and you can expect it to be available on the AIMS website and at good conferences in a few weeks’ time. It will be available for kindles as well as in paper form and I will keep you posted on here and let you know when it is available.
The second announcement? AIMS and I have decided that the new book is worth celebrating, and we are putting together a launch evening at which I will talk about Ten things I wish every woman knew about induction of labour. The date, time and venue are being finalised as I write, and I will share all the juicy details VERY soon, so watch this space!
Update: the book is now available here and the launch event referred to in this post has now taken place, but you can click on the ‘workshops’ or ‘speaking’ tabs above to see what else I’m up to! 🙂
