This book was written to satisfy the rising need for epidemiology oriented clinicians. It focuses on essential aspects of perinatal medicine in a straightforward accessible manner. It gives the epidemiological perspectives on maternal and fetal morbidities in addition to peripartum and neonatal complications. Chapters discuss epidemiology of diabetes mellitus during pregnancy, hypertensive disorders, ectopic pregnancy, preterm delivery, placental problems, epidemiology of obesity during pregnancy, intra-uterine growth restriction and maternal and perinatal mortality. Written by international experts, this sensible guide draws on evidence-based data in perinatal medicine. This book is a valuable resource for a broad spectrum of clinicians and healthcare professionals dealing with perinatal medicine. Medical and nursing students, as well as residents in obstetrics and pediatrics may largely benefit from it at various stages of their training. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical)
