The aim of this book is to be a core textbook of anatomy and physiology in childbearing. Written to present childbearing in the context of changes to non-pregnant physiology; therefore, both anatomy and physiology, their changes in pregnancy, and pathophysiology are all described. The book is divided into four sections - preconception, pregnancy, labour and puerperium - and it places childbearing in a total biological context so that concepts are drawn from disciplines such as evolution, ecology, biochemistry and cell biology. At all times, the text is related to practice and care giving.

Key Features:

  • Written by a teacher/practitioner of midwifery with many years' experience of teaching this subject.
  • Emphasises the links between knowledge and practice
  • Text is well-designed and easy to read.
  • Incorporates recent medical practice in caring for women and babies with problems.
  • Places childbearing in a biological context to allow depth without denigrating social sciences' contribution to care.

  • New 8pp colour plate section
