Fantastic book! What a great read! I believe it will be an important source of information for parents, midwives and junior doctors.
A superb book that I highly recommend for both expectant parents and maternity care providers
A clear, well-researched book that provides in-depth answers to many of the questions women, their families and their caregivers need to ask about this important condition.
Easy to read, extremely informative and enriched by compelling first-person accounts from women who have experienced the worst this condition has to offer.
As current and future Presidents of the International Society for the Study of Hypertension in Pregnancy, we recommend this book to all who are or have been involved with pre-eclampsia, whether as patients or health professionals.
This book is a labour of love, written by people who know about pre-eclampsia and care about its impact on women, families, doctors, midwives and others involved in the care of pregnant women. Everyone who reads it will learn from it to their benefit.
About the book
Pre-eclampsia is a pregnancy complication that is far from rare. But it remains so poorly understood that it cannot be reliably prevented or effectively managed except by delivery. And it continues to cause immense physical and emotional suffering to women, babies and families throughout the world.
Understanding Pre-eclampsia, co-written by a medical specialist, a midwife and a writer who lost her first baby because of pre-eclampsia, offers unique insights into this strange condition for the benefit of parents and health professionals (primarily midwives). It combines detailed explanations about pre-eclampsia and analysis of the latest research with patient stories gathered from all parts of the world, all presented in a highly accessible form.
Professor James Walker, a world expert on pre-eclampsia, has this to say:
‘This book is a labour of love, written by people who know about pre-eclampsia and care about its impact on women, families, doctors, midwives and others involved in the care of pregnant women. Everyone who reads it will learn from it to their benefit.’
