This is a new edition of a highly popular textbook which presents the fascinating field of reproductive anatomy and physiology in a style which is ideal for those who are new to the subject. Now with a significantly upgraded artwork program - which is also available as a downloadable image bank - this helpful volume builds up from the founding principles of human structure and function through to conception, embryological and fetal development and growth, the maternal responses to the growing fetus, parturition and the transition to neonatal life. This book will be suitable for all students of midwifery, as well as qualified midwives 'returning to practice' or undertaking post-graduate study.
