The potential contribution of antenatal care to health is enormous. However, if this potential is to be fully realised the content and organisation of that care must be more imaginatively conceived and realised and must take into account the uncomfortable paradox that antenatal care is a mixture of science and magic. This book faces that paradox, asking: 'what in antenatal care has been shown by proper scientific method to work?'; 'what is questionable dogma?'; 'what is magic?; 'what should be done now?'. This volume is intended not only for those professionals giving the care and for the potential mothers reveiving it, but also for all those who influence decisions concerning the future of antenatal care, such as politicians, researchers and the public in general.
