A highly illustrated, practical book covering the obstetric and surgical procedures used in intrapartum care, including commonly used procedures such as assisted vaginal delivery (forceps and vacuum delivery) and more rare techniques such as major vessel ligation and embolization and internal podalic version. The authors take a step-by-step approach to each technique and includes 'tips' and 'pointers' that only an experienced obstetrician would be able to describe. The book is enlivened by the inclusion of short, relevant 'historical highlights'- readers should find these enlightening and entertaining, providing a link with the original Munro Kerr text.

"The book is handy compared with other more detailed and voluminous textbooks on the market, and is accessible as an online version, like several other textbooks in obstetrics. The contents of the book, with its emphasis on clinical matters in a step-by-step approach, provide tips and advice to trainees and experienced obstetricians. I highly recommend the 12th edition of Munro Kerr's Operative Obstetrics."
