The authors of this book have made the subject as complete as possible: By including a section on neonatology which includes all the relevant topics encountered in day-to-day practice. It includes care of the new-born, neonatal examination, and diseases affecting the new born like respiratory distress syndrome, meconium aspiration syndrome, etc. In obstetrics, all topics from the basic principles of reproduction to diagnosis of pregnancy to antenatal care to the mechanism of normal and abnormal labour have been dealt with. A special mention has also been made of the operative procedures in obstetrics. Gynaecology has also been thoroughly dealt with by including infertility and contraception. An attempt has also been made to include all the important homeopathic therapeutics in each topic. Wherever necessary allopathic treatment is also included. Hence, the reader does not have to refer to different books for homeopathic therapeutics and allopathic emergency treatment. Also, a chapter on instruments used in obstetrics and gynaecology has been included.
A full attempt has been made to keep the language of the book simple so that not only students and practitioners can make use of it but also laymen, who can use it as a self-help book, giving them the much needed information on these, very common problems.
