Maternal Care: The Principles of Antepartum, Intrapartum, and Postpartum Care for the Practitioner of Obstetrics

This booklet should be studied most carefully by every practitioner of medicine who takes care of maternity cases, because it contains a wealth of useful information. It is safe to say that if a majority of the general practitioners in this country will acquaint themselves with the contents of this book there will be a marked improvement in antepartum, intrapartum and postpartum care with a consequent sudden and dramatic decrease in the maternal and fetal mortality and morbidity. The section on intrapartum care is particularly noteworthy for the general practitioner because it contains detailed instructions concerning the delivery of women in their own homes. Information is given not only for spontaneous deliveries but also for forceps operations, version and extraction, and breech delivery. The book is extremely well written and is delightful to read. The editor and his associates deserve the highest praise for their accomplishment.
