Published Reviews

"This book is a must-have for medical school libraries. Those providing care for pregnant women will find it to be a comprehensive and accessible resource... Given the rapid changes in the specialty, this current edition is a needed update. I have the seventh edition in my library, and I am glad to add this eighth edition."
