Safe and healthy motherhood depends on the preconceptional health of the prospective mother. Many pre-existing conditions and factors have an important impact on pregnancy, childbirth and postnatal development. Whilst most health carers may be familiar with some of the common ones (hypertension and obesity, for example), there is much less awareness of many others where a clear understanding of all the relevant issues is also essential. Diabetes, tuberculosis, prior malignancies, malaria, HIV infection and 'disease accumulation' (often encountered in older women) are just a few examples of the many conditions that physicians and their patients need to consider and for which management strategies need to be developed. This milestone textbook is the first of its kind to provide physicians and others carers with expert guidance on the clinical issues that should be addressed when advising patients, with a very wide range of pre-existing conditions, who wish to become pregnant. The book not only addresses the question 'How does this disease or condition affect pregnancy', but also 'How will pregnancy affect this condition or disease' In 33 specialist chapters, authored by 62 expert contributors, this textbook provides essential and practical advice that will be of real and direct value to almost all doctors, and other health professionals, concerned with the management of fertility, pregnancy, childbirth and postnatal care.
