Required Textbooks and Reading

January 2016

The following books are required to complete the ATM Midwifery Training Program. The correct version of each book must be used; usually this is the most current edition. However, use the edition specified on this list unless otherwise noted. Required texts are grouped by the module for which you will first need the text. Most textbooks will be used in multiple modules; however, they are not listed here more than once. Note there are additional recommend texts for use in special projects that are not listed here. They are on the downloadable PDF list below.

Students are not required to purchase any textbook from a publisher, but in order to prevent a costly mistake by inadvertently obtaining the wrong text or wrong edition we suggest ordering directly from the publisher. By following any provided links you can be assured of obtaining the correct textbook version and edition. Note that you do not need any supplemental materials which may be offered or bundled with some textbooks. Ordering used textbooks is not recommended since students frequently receive an incorrect or older edition. If you have any questions about correct versions/editions contact the Course Coordinator.
