A Doody's Core Title for 2011!
5 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"The book is comprehensive, concise, well illustrated, and an extremely valuable resource for perinatal healthcare providers....This book has rapidly become a go-to reference in the perinatal field and this new edition confirms its place as the gold standard in the field. Perinatologists will find this to be an essential part of their library. As more obstetric practitioners do investigative sonographic procedures in their offices, this book will be a valuable resource for them as well. The new edition is overdue and most welcome."--Doody's Review Service
"This invaluable up-to-date reference is a must have guide especially in non-tertiary care centers where the various experts may not be readily available to further guide the family and plan the rest of the antepartum, peripartum and postpartum care."--Center for Advanced Fetal Care Newsletter

Here, you’ll find all the insights you need to answer the questions of parents faced with a diagnosis of a fetal abnormality—and present them with a coordinated therapeutic plan.
