This concise, practical, beautifully written handbook addresses all the common, and many of the rarer complications which we can encounter and is clearly presented for immediate use, but also appropriately referenced for those with the time, inclination and need for in depth analysis. Apps are part of the future no doubt, but the written word is still king, and in the emergency scenario is likely to remain as such. I truly recommend this Handbook for everyone who could find themselves as the healthcare provider at the bedside of a mother in need anywhere in the resourced or under resourced world. - Prof Jim Dornan, Chair Health & Life Sciences UU, Chair Fetal Medicine QUB (retd.)
