In the past decade it has become apparent to many who teach undergraduates or conduct graduate programs in prenatal development that there is a need for an up-to-date, -omprehensive textbook on the physiology of the fetus. Although there is an ever-increasing number of sources of information on specific aspects of fetal development, there is no single, all embracing text which focuses on the fetus and its physiological relationship to its mother. The Textbook of Fetal Physiology fills that need. This book succinctly presents the principles of fetal physiology, with clear illustrations. The chapters are be broad in scope, and their relevance to clinical practice is addressed where relevant.
