It provides readers with current information on evidence-based approaches to the management of normal pregnancy, labor and birth, as well as the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of high-risk pregnancy, infertility, and acute and chronic diseases in women of all ages.

Features:

  • Clearly and consistently organized chapters for optimal comprehension of the material
  • A section dedicated to the legal and ethical issues related to reproductive health
  • More than 200 illustrations, many in full color, demonstrating critical data and concepts
