Scope and contents
Covering a wide range of relevant issues, ranging from fertility and contraception to common pregnancy risks and challenges, this book also discusses underlying psychological and social contexts. Each chapter includes clinical scenarios and practice points to reinforce important concepts and enhance learning. Uniquely, each chapter examines issues from the perspectives of both younger and older pregnant women, highlighting similarities and differences in their needs and experiences.
'A concise text that covers both extremes of the spectrum. This would be a good starting point' - Samantha Faulkner, Midwifery Lecturer, Birmingham City University.
