This book is a must-have for all health professionals involved in the care of women with high risk pregnancies. It is a concise and practical resource for all perinatal care and a reference for the diagnosis and management of high risk pregnancy.

The fifth edition of this classic, focuses on factors affecting pregnancy, genetics, practical diagnostic techniques, maternal diseases in pregnancy and pregnancy complications, labor, anesthesia, and neonatal considerations.

Dr Queenan is joined in the the fifth edition by a new editor, Katherine Spong, Head of Perinatology at the National Institutes of Health. The book will take an explicitly evidence-based approach this time around and will expand upon several important areas; genetics, doppler ultrasound, prevention, AIDS, group B streptococcus, preeclampsia, and prematurity.
