The need for joint medical and midwifery care is stressed in the latest CEMACH report, with a recommendation that contemporary midwifery education prepares midwives for problems in pregnancy and adverse pregnancy outcome. Pre-conception care for women with medical disorders has also been stressed.

Medical Disorders in Pregnancy is one of the first texts written specifically for midwives that provides an outline of common medical disorders that may be affected by pregnancy or which may cause pregnancy complications. For ease of use, all conditions are presented on two page templates, and each addresses: An explanation of the condition; Standard 'Non-pregnancy' treatment; Pre-conception care; Antenatal care; Intrapartum care, and Postnatal care. The management, treatment and care by both doctors and midwives are provided to allow a mutual understanding of each others roles and responsibilities.
