From the Back Cover:

This much-needed resource brings together the most up-to-date and relevant research from a variety of disciplines to give a comprehensive account of the psychological factors surrounding reproductive health today. Olga van den Akker provides a multidisciplinary exploration of all stages of the reproductive life span, from embryonic, infant, child reproductive development and adolescent sexual development through reproductive health in adulthood and sexuality in old age. The book addresses the psychological impacts of reproduction, pregnancy, maternity, and birth, as well as adjustment to life after pregnancy failure, abortion and childbirth.

Together, the wide variety of topics will illuminate practitioners and foster a deeper understanding of reproductive health through the life span.
