This is a highly illustrated, practical book covering the obstetric and surgical procedures used in intrapartum care, including commonly used procedures and more rare techniques.

The authors take a step-by-step approach to each technique and includes 'tips' and 'pointers', whilst contextualising this with the history of obstetric practice.
