Labour Ward Manual book cover

Labour Ward Manual

This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. Liu's Labour Ward Manual has for many years been the standard work for all personnel working on the labour ward. It gives instruction on the best application of technical procedures employed in the labour ward whilst promoting the ethos that the labouring mother and the unborn child must be the prime focus of attention.
