With its straightforward writing style and extraordinary breadth of content, Physiology in Childbearing is an ideal textbook for students of midwifery wanting to master the physiology of pregnancy, childbirth, the neonate and breastfeeding.

This popular book has been fully updated to incorporate new knowledge and guidelines, and has a stronger focus on diversity. It covers basic biochemistry, cellular biology, genetics and fertility, as well as embryology and fetal growth, the physiology of pregnancy, and complications of labour.
