Women-Centered Care in Pregnancy and Childbirth
A woman-centered approach to pregnancy must be flexible enough to address the variety of women’s experiences around the world, encompassing medical conditions, cultures and family structures.

Manual of High-Risk Pregnancy
This book is a comprehensive guide to the assessment and management of high risk pregnancy. Divided into eleven sections, the text begins with discussion on antenatal care, nutrition, genetic screening and ultrasonography-guided interventions in pregnancy. The following sections cover different factors that cause a pregnancy to be high risk including haematological disorders, early pregnancy complications, medical disorders such as gestational diabetes and cardiac disease, obstetric complications such as eclampsia and preterm labour, infections, foetal growth problems, and autoimmune diseases.
Laparoscopic Urogynaecology: Principles and Practice
Laparoscopic surgery for the treatment of disorders such as urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse is evolving rapidly with few resources available for clinicians. This text will act as a gold standard reference in the field of laparoscopic urogynaecological surgery. The introductory section covers the basics of laparoscopy, including patient selection, surgical set up and the prevention and management of complications. Further sections focus on different “gold standard” techniques and the procedural steps needed to perform the surgery, including chapters on colposuspension, paravaginal repair, laparoscopic hysterectomy as well as apical suspensory surgery such as sacrocolpopexy and sacrohysteropexy.

Get Through MRCOG Part 3: Clinical Assessment, Second Edition
This study guide offers a systematic, comprehensive and focused approach to preparation for the MRCOG Part 3 Clinical Assessment exam. After an initial introduction, the text divides by OSCE station, beginning with an analysis of what the station is testing and what approaches and preparation are required, supported by tips and examples; this is followed by thoroughly worked practice questions based upon the exam format, with an analysis of how these are likely to be marked. Practice exam ‘circuits’ with fully worked questions and answers conclude the book.
Mr Justin Clark trained in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in Leicester, Birmingham and the West Midlands and obtained the Membership of the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (RCOG) in 1999. He spent two years conducting research into heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain and endometriosis culminating in a Doctor of Medicine awarded with honours in 2004. He was appointed as a Lecturer in Gynaecology at Birmingham University and Consultant in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Birmingham Women’s Hospital in 2004. He has developed clinical expertise in the management of general gynaecological conditions, especially the treatment of menstrual disorders, fibroids, pelvic pain and endometriosis. This capability was facilitated by the acquisition of RCOG accreditation in minimal access ‘key hole’ surgery, specialising in hysteroscopic and laparoscopic techniques, and gynaecological ultrasound. He has been at the forefront in pioneering outpatient interventions for the diagnosis and treatment of menstrual disorders utilising hysteroscopy and ultrasound. His strong research background and clinical experience enabled him to publish a definitive book in 2005 about the modern management of common gynaecological problems utilising minimally invasive approaches. He is one of the leading UK experts in outpatient therapeutic interventions in benign gynaecology including outpatient ‘office’ hysteroscopic removal of polyps and fibroids, endometrial ablation and the new ‘non-cut’ outpatient method of female sterilisation (the ‘EssureTM’ system) that avoids the need for general anaesthetic and hospital admission.
Surgical Gynecology: A Case-Based Approach
Gynecology is principally an operative specialty and the range of gynecologic procedures managed is constantly expanding due to improved instrumentation and minimally invasive techniques. Covering the entire spectrum of gynecologic surgery through a case-based, digestible format, procedures such as vaginal, transvaginal, hysteroscopic, laparoscopic, robotic, and abdominal procedures are included, as well as common surgical challenges and complications.
For each case, a clinical vignette outlines the situation and the clinical context of the patient, followed by a comprehensive discussion of the evidence-based management approach and key teaching points. The decision to operate, contraindications, alternatives to surgery and preoperative counseling is discussed in detail along with the level of care needed for each case. Readers will improve their knowledge base of gynecologic surgery and gain multiple tools to overcome common surgical obstacles.
