Problems in early pregnancy are among the most common conditions in gynecology and - with management becoming less invasive and depending more on accurate ultrasound and a good understanding of serum biochemistry - many countries now recommend that all maternity units have an early pregnancy section dedicated to managing these conditions. In addition to this, the subject is also an essential part of the training syllabus in the speciality of maternal-fetal medicine. Handbook of Early Pregnancy Care is a practical guide for the management of at-risk early pregnancy. The chapters are concise, well-illustrated and contain decision trees for the management of each condition. Focusing on practical management, not just research, this helpful text will be beneficial in the clinic, as contributors are encouraged to tell the readers what to do in critical situations. Covering key points and containing illustrative case studies, this handbook is relevant to trainees in maternal-fetal medicine and obstetrics, as well asnurses and sonographers who see many at-risk patients in the early stages of pregnancy.
