The third edition of The Management of Labour arms the practising obstetrician with clear, evidence-based guidelines to provide optimum care to the woman in labour and her unborn child. The editors and the contributing authors believe that better management of labour will result in a reduction in the rates of maternal mortality and morbidity and will help prevent neonatal death, especially in developing countries like India.
