About this book

In The Endocrinology of Pregnancy, leading researchers illuminate the complex interactions between maternal and fetal-placental tissues that control the establishment and maintenance of pregnancy, the proper development of the fetus, the birth process, and the behavioral aspects of bonding between mother and newborn. These expert researchers review the endocrine and physiological events that culminate in the delivery of offspring, and provide a solid base of comparative information on the menstrual cycle of primates, including humans. Also discussed are the sources and functions of both steroid and protein hormones from the placenta, the details of their effects on uterine function, placental development, fetal growth and well-being, and maternal responses to pregnancy.

The Endocrinology of Pregnancy is the first comprehensive, state-of-the-art account of the key endocrine mechanisms associated with the establishment and maintenance of pregnancy. It instantly becomes the standard reference source not only for reproductive scientists, but also for those clinicians who want better to understand the complex factors that affect pregnancy-and their pregnant patients.

Reviews

"The exciting aspect of this volume is the inclusion of new areas of endocrine physiology. . .This book would be invaluable for graduate students in reproductive endocrinology, as well as fellows in the clinical areas of reproductive biology. . .This is truly a worthwhile investment for both basic and clinical researchers working in the broad area of the endocrinology of pregnancy."-Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism

". . .provide[es] a comprehensive overview of the endocrinological relationship between mother and offspring in subprimates and primates, will be of interest to endocrinologists, neonatologists and certainly to obstetricians. . .A very timely book."-The Journal of Endocrine Genetics
