Complementary therapies are a form of health treatments that aren't typically found in conventional (Western) medicine. Ayurveda, Acupuncture, homoeopathy, aromatherapy, biofeedback, hypnosis, massage therapy, relaxation techniques, nutritional supplements, energy work, and traditional healing are examples of these treatments. Midwives should not only understand the benefits and drawbacks of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), but they must also be able to communicate with women about the effectiveness and potential risks of these procedures. Given the growing use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in the field of midwifery, medical organizations should develop relevant guidelines for employing these medications in midwifery, particularly for maternity care.
