Unlike most medical subjects,obstetrics is largely concerned with normal events, and the most common problems involve decisions about when a normal event becomes abnormal. The normal events of pregnancy, labour and delivery are fully described together with the standards of care needed to manage them. The book describes the interface between normality and abnormality, and how it is to be recognised and responded to. This book will be of interest to lawyers and barristers alike and will provide them with a useful insight into obstetrics with regard to medico-legal litigation. It will also prove an invaluable source of reference for risk managers, doctors and midwives.
