This book is a comprehensive guide to caesarean section for practicing obstetricians.

Divided into four sections, the text begins with an overview of anatomy and physiology in childbirth, followed by discussion on diagnosis in clinical obstetrics and use of a partograph to record key data on both the mother and baby during labour.

Section three covers the complete process of caesarean section, describing indications for the operation, anaesthesia, and the actual procedure. A chapter is dedicated to perimortem and post-mortem caesarean delivery. Postoperative recovery and potential complications are also explained.

The final section of the book examines alternatives to caesarean section surgery.

With a highly experienced team of authors, this practical guide is further enhanced by more than 300 illustrations and tables.
