Easy-to-read with stand-alone chapters, this book covers key aspects of O and G, and addresses areas not covered in other texts. It is relevant to all stages of O and G practice - from trainees to consultants (and some lay interest). This book offers topics in psychological care to trainees and specialist in O and G, helps them understand the emotional problems their patients face, and shows them how to undertake psychological care.
