It is common practice for medical professionals to be involved in the treatment of pregnant patients, even if they are not necessarily specialists in all problems that may arise during pregnancy. The most common and serious medical conditions that can occur during pregnancy are discussed in the Manual of Obstetric Medicine.

These conditions include heart disease, thromboembolism, diabetes, skin problems, gastrointestinal diseases, neurological problems, hormonal diseases, hypertension and preeclampsia, as well as a number of other conditions.

Symptoms and potential diagnosis are presented in table form that is easy to read and contain a discussion of important clinical aspects and possible avenues of investigation. A helpful appendix contains a section on prescribing during pregnancy, as well as a list of medications that should not be taken during pregnancy. This section is intended for doctors who are naturally hesitant to prescribe medications during pregnancy.

Additionally, a second appendix provides a listing of normal laboratory values ​​during pregnancy, segmented by three trimesters, to facilitate accurate interpretation of laboratory tests. In the comprehensive treatment of women with medical problems, prepregnancy counseling and postnatal follow-up are essential components, and this component should include the provision of appropriate contraceptive guidance. As a result, a new third appendix has been included to serve as a useful reference for clinicians who are not familiar with effective contraceptive methods.

Tables, bullets, and check boxes called “Points to Remember” have been incorporated into the layout of the newly revised edition to facilitate easy retrieval of important information. It is a crucial on-site resource for obstetricians, physicians, general practitioners and midwives to have both in practice and during training.
