About the Book

The target audience for MATERNAL HEALTH; PREGNANCY, MORBIDITY, and MORTALITY: Volume 1, is for women who are or plan to become pregnant. For an easy comprehension, the book layout follows a unique order of events. Unfolding, in its 18 chapters is a true story of a first time pregnancy with a traumatic and painful cesarean delivery; whereas the epidural anesthesia nor the additional sedation failed to have worked. She felt increased pain and pressure (as her fascial incision was grasped with the Kocher clamps and sharply and bluntly dissected); before, during and after the delivery. All the while she suffered with severe eclampsia and was treated with Magnesium Sulfate to lower blood pressure and Betamethasone to develop the infant lungs due to a intra-uterine growth restriction resulting in a preterm birth. According to The Mayo Clinic, “It's common that someone who’s sedated may be aware for part or all of the procedure. Although very rare. Estimates vary, but about 1 or 2 people in every 1,000 may experience unintended intra-operative and even rarer to experience pain.” General anesthesia - Mayo Clinic. (2023, February 16). Also, find out how to read a medical record and medical report findings to help women and expected mothers make life-informed decisions of their own. THE MATERNAL HEALTH; PREGNANCY, MORBIDITY, and MORTALITY introduction sets the stage for a dramatic read that is truly unreal.
