From the Publisher
The new 3rd Edition of this highly popular text has been extensively revised to reflect the modern practice of obstetrics and care of the newborn. Technical and laboratory advances since the last edition are fully incorporated, and the role of these new methods in establishing early, accurate diagnosis and providing a basis for monitoring is discussed throughout. More emphasis is given to the implications of medical disorders in pregnancy, and the means of managing them successfully. Also included is a new chapter on the exciting and rapidly expanding field of fetal medical. Comprehensive, authoritiative, and sufficiently-detailed.
