The new edition of Physiology in Childbearing with Anatomy and Related Biosciences continues to offer readers with a sound introduction to human biology as it relates to pregnancy and childbirth. The new edition retains the online question bank with downloadable image collection and is suitable for midwives – whether qualified or in training – throughout the world.

    • Straightforward writing style helps demystify a challenging subject area
    • Applies theory to practice to show how a knowledge of the biological sciences can enhance the care given to mothers and babies
    • Designed to facilitate early recognition of pathology to help prevent morbidity and mortality
    • Ideal introduction to basic biochemistry, cellular biology and genetics for those who have no prior knowledge of the subject areas
    • Chapters on embryology help explain the occurrence of neonatal pathology
    • A ‘body systems approach’ – including embryological development – enables an understanding of the physiological and pathophysiological changes that occur during pregnancy
    • Clear diagrams allow an understanding of the complex three-dimensional concepts seen in biology
    • Helpful pedagogy such as ‘Main Points’ boxes at the end of each chapter act as useful aide-memoires
    • Enhances the safety of mothers and babies, both in the developed world and those countries where the provision of adequate care remains limited
    • Revised contributor team provides an international perspective
    • Updated design presents shorter sections of information with concise summaries of ‘key points’ and easy to interpret figures and tables
