Essential reading for any trainee midwife, Midwifery by Ten Teachers is a comprehensive coursebook covering all aspects of the principles and practices of midwifery. Based on the popular Obstetrics by Ten Teachers, this book has been thoroughly reviewed and revised to ensure it provides the most accurate and appropriate information for the student and practising midwife. Contents include the role of the midwife in modern maternity care, conception, implantation and embryology, physiology of pregnancy, labour and the postnatal woman, normal and abnormal fetal growth and development, antenatal and postnatal care (physical and emotional wellbeing), diseases, disorder and complications, emergencies and the neonate. A chapter is devoted to the increasingly important issues of law and ethics in practice. Detailed coverage of all the key elements of midwifery by a team of experienced lecturers and practitioners combined with inviting 4-colour layout and plenty of colour photographs make this book the one reference any trainee, returning or practising midwife will need.Abdominal circumference This page intentionally left blank C h a p t. 16 20 24 28 32 36 40 Figure 7.1 Diagram illustrating placement of the needle for amniocentesis, ... in fetal growth restriction associated with fetal hypoxia, with redistribution of fetal blood flow away from the kidneys to vital structures such as brain and heart, anbsp;...
