About this book


This latest volume in the immensely popular Midwifery Practice Series deals with a further set of important issues, this time drawn from all three stages of care during pregnancy. The chapter structure adopted in the first three books is retained, and, as before, presentation of a broad-ranging survey and analysis of key research literature placed in the context of clinical practice is the guiding philosophy behind the whole book.
