Intrapartum Care

Woods, D. L. ; Greenfield, D. H. ; Louw, H.


Intrapartum Care was developed for doctors and advanced midwives who care for women who deliver in level 2 hospitals. It contains theory and skills chapters adapted from the labour chapters of Maternal Care. Particular attention is given to the care of the mother, the management of labour and monitoring the wellbeing of the fetus. Intrapartum Care was written to support and complement the national protocol of intrapartum care and the essential steps to manage obstetric emergencies (ESMOE) in South Africa.
