This book provides a comprehensive overview of clinical intrapartum care, with an emphasis on a pragmatic approach which promotes the necessary vigilant care while also supporting the wishes of the pregnant woman who wants minimal interference. This second edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect current practice and developments in the field since publication of the first edition, with six new chapters added on topics that are of increasing importance: improving intrapartum care, lower genital tract trauma, emergency obstetric hysterectomy, acute uterine inversion, disseminated intravascular coagulation and acute tocolysis. The book is primarily designed to provide a comprehensive summary for candidates preparing for the Part 2 MRCOG examination, and as such covers the RCOG curriculum for intrapartum care. It is also a valuable guide for all healthcare professionals working in the field, including trainees, consultants and midwives.
