Hesperian Health Guides and the contributors to A Book for Midwives do not assume liability for the use of information contained in this book.

All health workers have a responsibility to be honest with themselves and the people they care for about the limits of their skills. This means: only perform the procedures you are trained to. Find help from other, more experienced health workers when a woman needs a kind of care that you are not experienced with. Seek the advice of local health workers and medical authorities about the safest ways to practice in your area. This manual can help you learn new skills, but no book can take the place of hands-on training with a skilled and experienced teacher. Keep watching, reading, listening, and learning more whenever you have the chance.
