Antenatal Consults: A Guide for Neonatologists and Paediatricians

2013 BMA Medical Book Awards Highly Commended in Paediatrics!

An essential resource, covering possible problems expected at birth and common facets of antenatal consultations.

Antenatal Consults: A guide for neonatologists and paediatricians is a logically ordered and highly illustrated medical resource, essential for anyone involved in antenatal care.

This important book informs the multidisciplinary team - from obstetricians and maternity staff through to materno-foetal medicine specialists and, of course, paediatric and OBGYN trainees.

Featuring contributions from leading neonatal specialists in Australia, the book’s authoritative contents help arm antenatal staff with advice, information and examples of how to best counsel parents expecting a foetus at risk.

With over 50 informative, concise chapters, Antenatal Consults addresses numerous possible problems expected at birth - the most common reasons for an antenatal consultation - combined with advice on how to manage them.

These include maternal disorders that may affect the foetus; babies delivering prematurely or with a severe growth restriction; babies with a significant abnormality such as congenital heart disease, spina bifida or gastroschisis; and babies with a skeletal issue, a cleft palate or renal tract problem.

Antenatal Consults: A guide for neonatologists and paediatricians is also useful to midwifery, nursing and allied health staff that care for mothers and babies.
