Introduction

Pregnancy Disorders and Perinatal Outcomes offers readers insights into knowledge related to maternal habits or disorders that could affect fetal development and lead to disability later in childhood and adulthood. It contains chapters on the role of placenta, hormones, stress, nutrition, diabetes, hypertension, in vitro fertilization, obesity, immune systems and epigenetics in pregnancy well-being and perinatal outcomes. This ebook integrates both fundamental and clinical medicine and well as molecular and cell biology. It is written in a multidisciplinary context and would be a handy reference to a wide spectrum of readers including students, clinicians (obstetricians, neonatologists, pediatricians) and basic scientists in gynecology.
