Using a combination of algorithms, years of experience and an evidence-based approach, this book will help you to:Diagnose difficult to identify conditions during pregnancyEffectively prescribe for pregnant and lactating womenOvercome the challenges of imaging, anesthesia and critical care for pregnant women

de Swiet’s assists you in navigating the many challenges pregnancy presents for both the patient and physician.
