Synopsis
In this volume, leading international experts recommend strategies for reducing the risk of maternal and child mortality and morbidity during the perinatal period. The contributors thoroughly examine the risk factors associated with maternal and neonatal mortality, intrauterine growth retardation, and preterm delivery, including maternal age, number of prior births, maternal nutritional deficiencies, infections during pregnancy, and pregnancy induced hypertension. Detailed guidelines are presented on prenatal care throughout pregnancy, antenatal and intrapartum assessment of the fetus, management of high-risk deliveries, resuscitation of neonates, and care of neonates during the first few days of life. The book includes in-depth, critical discussions of antenatal, intrapartum, and neonatal care practices in industrialized and developing countries.
