RIVERSIDE, Calif. – A new practical reference book covering normal prenatal care, medical complications of pregnancy, obstetric emergencies and postpartum care has been published by Perinatal Advisory Council: Leadership, Advocacy and Consultation (PAC/LAC), with UCR School of Medicine faculty member Jeotsna Grover, M.D. as the co-editor.

Grover and co-editor Sherri Garber Mendelson, Ph.D., nursing manager at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Los Angeles, conceived the book Prenatal and Intrapartum Guidelines of Care 2015 as a hands-on reference for obstetricians, laborists, midwives, family medicine physicians, and nurses providing care in women’s health centers and hospital obstetrics wards. It is also expected to be used by medical students, residents and fellows while on obstetric rotations.

“We wanted to produce a book that would serve as a simple reference having a vast application for multiple levels of providers,” Grover said. “It is a practical book for prompt patient care.”

The 55-chapter, 650-page book is organized into six sections – Prenatal Care Management of Labor, Management of Maternal Conditions, Fetal Conditions and Complications of Pregnancy, Obstetrical Emergencies, Special Testing and Procedures, and Postpartum Care. The book is available on a flash drive or online for easy access and can be ordered from the website paclac.org.

The book sponsor, PAC/LAC, is a Los Angeles-based organization with a mission to “positively impact the health of women and their families.”

Grover, who joined the UCR School of Medicine in 2014, is vice chair of obstetrics-gynecology and chief of maternal fetal medicine at the Riverside University Health System-Medical Center and a clinical professor in obstetrics-gynecology in the UCR School of Medicine. Prior to joining UCR, she was the director of the Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine at Los Angeles County Olive View UCLA Medical Center. There, she also served as supervisor of the Prenatal Diagnosis and Fetal Assessment Unit, providing consultation on high-risk pregnancies and overseeing the high-risk obstetrics clinic, the diabetes clinic and the ultrasound clinic.
