Obstetrics patient information

I regularly curate the best patient information leaflets from various sources and provide patients with links to those documents or websites. This allows them and their families to easily understand medical conditions and procedures, and to make informed decisions about their healthcare. This website and its contents are an ongoing venture in my free time; therefore this page is subject to change on a regular basis. Only some of the links are active on this page; additional information leaflets are available to members (my current patients) only.
