Reviews

From the reviews:

“The editors are a duo of clinicians with a wealth of expertise. They have meticulously put together an excellent and highly relevant textbook, which encompasses the best available evidence and experience. … The text is therefore highly recommended to haematologists, gynaecologists with special interest in early pregnancy, midwives and obstetricians who specialise in maternal medicine, obstetric physisicans, anaesthetists with special interest in obstetrics and higher level trainees preparing for such roles.” (Gabriella Gray, The Obstetrician & Gynaecologist, Vol. 16 (1), 2014)

“This book uses the literature to form evidence-based management strategies for managing pregnant patients with hematological disorders. … The book is written for anyone who will care for pregnant patients with hematological issues, ranging from hematologists and obstetricians to residents in the field to midwives. … Overall, this is a comprehensive book with rich detail, particularly about rare conditions.” (Anthony Shanks, Doody's Book Reviews, March, 2013)
