* The Practical Skills Guide by Pam Weaver and Sharon Evans is an optional book for this workshop. During the workshop we refer to the information in a few of the chapters in PSG.   We don’t require that you have it for the workshop, however, if you are going to go through  an education program to be a Certified Professional Midwife, it is a book you will need  and will be very helpful in your studies into midwifery.
