Overview

Oxorn Foote Human Labor and Birth, Sixth Edition by Glenn David Posner, Amanda Y. Black, Griffith David Jones, Jessica Dy

THE CLASSIC CHILDBIRTH HANDBOOK--COMPLETELY REVISED AND UPDATED IN FULL COLOR

Edition after acclaimed edition, Oxorn-Foote Human Labor & Birth has provided the most comprehensive, yet accessible overview of obstetrics available. Going beyond scientific theory and a technological orientation, this landmark guide is written for the real world of clinical practice, as it expertly examines all mechanisms of human labor and delivery.

The book begins with a valuable review of clinical anatomy, then thoroughly examines the three stages of labor, with a focus on proper management and birthing techniques. Specific guidance on the full spectrum of complications and delivery situations, including Cesarean section, breech presentation, transverse lie, umbilical cord issues, dystocia, and more are also presented. A final section addresses such critical concerns as preterm labor, antepartum hemorrhage, and maternal and fetal complications in labor.
