It encourages the reader to view each mother and baby as unique, taking into account their experiences preconceptually, antenatally and through childbirth. The text covers: normal foetal development; parent's concerns and how to respond to them; the events of labour and delivery; the clinical examination of the neonate; the identification and management of cognital abnormalities; and accountability and legal issues.
