The definitive guide to women’s reproductive health from conception to old age.

Obstetrics and Gynaecology: an evidence-based guide is the ideal resource for anyone working in the field of women’s health, including medical students, junior doctors, midwives, nurses and general practitioners.

Expertly written and packed with the most relevant, up-to date evidence; this obstetrics and gynaecology textbook covers all aspects of women’s health from conception to puberty and from pregnancy to old age.

Obstetrics and Gynaecology: an evidence-based guide addresses common areas of everyday practice.

In addition, it highlights less common but equally important issues in women’s health, such as gynaecological malignancies and managing multiple pregnancies.

Written by an editorial team comprising an obstetrician, gynaecologist and sonographer, the content in this obstetrics and gynaecology textbook is balanced and chronologically arranged from from birth to end of life.
