On her frights and griefs
(Which never tender lady hath borne greater)
She is, something before her time, deliver’d . . . 
A daughter, and a goodly babe,
Lusty, and like to live.

William Shakespeare, The Winter's Tale, II.ii.23-27

The delivery of a premature infant or the occurrence of a complicated pregnancy has both troubled and perplexed parents, midwifes, and obstetricians through the centuries. In the third edition of the multiauthored textbook Clinical Obstetrics: The Fetus and Mother, Reece, Hobbins, and Grant update their prior editions and provide a stronger clinical emphasis for this textbook of maternal-fetal medicine. The authors indicate that the text can be used by physicians-in-training and medical students as well as perinatologists and others who practice obstetrics.
