Covering a wide range of relevant issues from fertility and contraception to common pregnancy risks and challenges, this guide discusses underlying psychological and social contexts, and suggested mechanisms. Clinical scenarios and practice points are included in each chapter to reinforce important concepts and enhance learning.
