A Practical Guide to Third Trimester of Pregnancy and Puerperium

by Alok Sharma

This book focuses on a practical guide to third trimester of pregnancy and puerperium. The third trimester of pregnancy is the penultimate time in the experience of pregnancy and childbirth after the initial months of pregnancy. During the third trimester, the woman undergoes substantial changes in her physiology which make her vulnerable to develop a number of conditions either de novo or by unmasking of preexisting ailments. These profound changes can only be understood and managed by venturing into not just obstetrics but also medicine and the medicine behind obstetrics. Starting with the normal physiology and anatomy, then progressing to the normal antenatal, intranatal, and postnatal period, this book follows a very logical and lucid manner of presenting the contents to the reader. From then on, there is an extensive coverage of all the complications that a woman can come across in the third trimester. This textbook not only contains normal physiology but also deals with medical, surgical, and gynecological complications during the third trimester of pregnancy, labor, and puerperium. Each topic has been discussed briefly in this book. The section on neonatal care emphasizes the obstetrician’s need to understand the basics of neonatology. The aim of this textbook is to help the undergraduates, postgraduates, and practitioners to clarify their doubts and to organize some of the intricacies regarding the subject.
