'Women are not dying because of diseases we cannot treat. They are dying because societies have yet to make the decision that their lives are worth saving.'-Mahmoud Fathalla, past president of the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics.

Pregnancy is not only an altered physiology, but also has profound psychological and social implications. Sometimes, these changing body dynamics are far reaching. Chronicles of a Gynaecologist, written by a celebrated doctor and inspired by the stories of real women, explores issues ranging from the largely preventable complications experienced during pregnancies, the myths and superstitions surrounding them, to emotionally wrenching situations like postpartum depression. These compelling stories also touch upon topics that society tries to hide under the carpet, such as domestic violence, perversions, sexual orientation, rape and incest. The author tries to decipher the conundrum of women's lives at every step. Every story raises a curtain and promises to be a revelation.
