Other topics to be addressed include the history and epidemiology of cesarean delivery, effects on the fetus and neonate, ethical issues, the humanization of childbirth, and maternal expectations and satisfaction.

Anesthesia for Cesarean Section will be appreciated by all anesthesiologists and will be a useful source of information for obstetricians, gynecologists, midwives, nurses, medical students, and trainees. ------------- Damnant quod non intellegunt!
