Book Description

A new subspecialty is growing at the interface of reproductive medicine and perinatology: infertility. Textbook of Periconceptional Medicine provides an authoritative and comprehensive reference resource for those providing medical care to women trying to conceive a healthy pregnancy.

A revolutionary first edition, this text brings together a number of difficult and usually separate topics and provides the busy clinician with one authoritative and methodical reference.

Reflecting the breadth of modern clinical practice in this emerging therapy area, this integrated text incorporates aspects of all the relevant existing expertise, including:

  • Preconceptual counseling
  • Fertility investigation
  • Therapy and management of preconception through the first trimester of pregnancy
