Recent Advances in Postpartum Care

by Mandakini Megh, Reena Wani

This book, Recent Advances in Postpartum Care, deals with postpartum care. Childbirth is not a medical condition; it is a promise. But for the women, who succumb to pregnancy-related complications, it is a promise shamefully betrayed. To die while giving birth must surely be the mother of all ironies. The need for care does not stop as soon as the birth is over. The hours, days, and weeks that follow birth may be dangerous for women as well as for their babies. This book on postpartum care is meant to be a ready reference material with practical pointers and clinical situations for practicing obstetricians, gynecologists, and postgraduate students, Government Medical Officers, NRHM and NGOs, highlighting recent advances. Moreover, various chapters such as physiology of third stage of labor, physiology of lactation, postpartum collaps, amniotic fluid embolism, etc. are explained in detail.
