Abstract
Vous serez probablement excitée et anxieuse à l’approche de la naissance de votre bébé. La durée moyenne d’une grossesse est de 40 semaines. La plupart des femmes accouchent entre la 38e et la 42e semaine. Beaucoup de bébés ne viennent pas au monde à la date prévue d’accouchement. Environ 85 % des bébés naissent dans la semaine qui précède ou qui suit la date prévue d’accouchement. La meilleure chose à faire est de considérer votre date prévue d’accouchement comme la meilleure « estimation possible ». La présente brochure explique à quoi vous attendre si la grossesse se poursuit après votre date prévue d’accouchement. Elle traite aussi du déroulement des évaluations post-terme et de la façon de vous préparer à ces consultations. Les symptômes exigeant un appel à l’unité du travail et de l’accouchement sont indiqués.
This is a French translation of the English pamphlet 1925, “Giving Birth After Your Due Date”. You will likely feel excited and anxious as you wait for the birth of your baby. The average length of pregnancy is 40 weeks. Most women give birth between 38 to 42 weeks. Many babies are not born on their due date. About 85% of babies are born within one week before or after their due date. It’s best to think of your due date as a “best guess.” This pamphlet describes what to expect if you go past your due date. What is done during a Post-Dates Assessment (PDA) and how to get ready for these visits are covered. A list of symptoms which require you to call the Labour & Delivery Unit is listed.

Abstract
This is the second edition of a well-received book that reflects the state of the art in diagnosis and treatment of acute abdominal disorders in the pregnant patient. It addresses a wide range of conditions, whether associated with or incidental to pregnancy, ranging from very rare to more common ones, such as acute appendicitis and acute cholecystitis. It offers an update on recommendations, guidelines and scenarios to provide fundamental support for all clinicians who might encounter such cases. The book highlights the importance of a rapid diagnosis to avoid serious consequences for both the mother and the fetus. Furthermore, it sheds light on the different imaging modalities of rare pathologies that can occur during pregnancy, helping clinicians and radiologists to better define underlying cases. This new edition has been almost completely rewritten, and includes an additional section focusing on urologic emergencies, preterm labor and intra-abdominal pressure, as well as new figures and tables. It is equally valuable for general and abdominal surgeons, gynecologists and obstetricians, as well as emergency physicians, who may be the first specialists to have clinical contact with this group of patients. From the reviews of the first edition: "This book contains most of the information needed to address the problem of acute abdomen in pregnancy and brings state of the art principles and practice of emergency, abdominal surgery, obstetrics, gynecology and maternal-fetal medicine. The book should prompt clinicians, primarily surgeons and obstetricians to make faster and more precise diagnosis, earlier surgical interventions with the optimal outcome for the mother and child, by a multidisciplinary approach." (Translation into English; Original review: Prof. Dr. Tomislav Luetiç, Lijec Vjesn, Vol. 137 (5-6), May-June, 2015) "This book provides a detailed description of the various clinical scenarios in which we encounter acute abdominal conditions in pregnant patients. ÇŒ This is an excellent resource for practicing acute care surgeons and obstetricians/gynecologists who are most likely to encounter these patients. It also is a very useful resource for general practitioners, since they frequently are the first healthcare professionals who encounter pregnant patients with these conditions." (Prashant Khullar, Doody's Book Reviews, February, 2015).

Abstract
This book will help the reader to recognize, diagnose, and efficiently treat most of the acute abdominal disorders that may be encountered in the pregnant patient, whether associated with or incidental to the pregnancy. A wide range of conditions are addressed, including some which are very rare as well as those more frequently seen, such as acute appendicitis and acute cholecystitis. The principles underlying diagnosis and therapy are clearly explained. Particular features in the clinical presentation of pregnant patients are highlighted, and specific diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms and protocols, described. Attention is drawn to the diagnostic difficulties that may arise from atypical presentations in these patients and to restrictions on the use of certain diagnostic imaging studies. The text is complemented by more than 200 figures relevant to clinical practice. Acute Abdomen During Pregnancy is designed to meet the needs of both the gynecologist and the general or abdominal surgeon, who together form the multidisciplinary team mandatory for effective treatment that will safeguard mother and baby.

Abstract
A description of our current understanding of antiepileptic drug use during pregnancy, this book includes chapters on the impact of seizures on the mother and developing child, changes in maternal physiology during pregnancy and its impact on drug disposition, and the pharmacokinetic differences between the various anti-seizure medications. It also deals with the possible harmful effects of antiepileptic drug exposure during pregnancy on the physical and intellectual development of the fetus. Clinicians have to balance the potential adverse effects of the medicine for the fetus and mother-to-be against the risks that uncontrolled seizures hold for both when treating pregnant women with antiepileptic drugs. Only recently have enough scientific data emerged to provide a rational basis for treatment decisions that take in both aspects. This work provides a single, accessible, and up-to-date resource for busy clinicians.

Abstract
‘The Maternal Sepsis Intervention has had a profound impact on maternal mortality and antibiotic use whilst also reducing hospital costs. The Ministry of Health is keen to explore opportunities to extending the lessons learnt and integrate them in national policy-making.' -Dr. Richard Mugahi, Ministry of Health, Uganda. This open access book provides an accessible introduction to the mechanics of international development and global health text for policy-makers and students across a wide range of disciplines. Antimicrobial resistance is a major threat to the well-being of patients and health systems the world over. In fragile health systems so challenged, on a day-today basis, by the overwhelming burden of both infectious and non-communicable disease, it is easy to overlook the impacts of AMR. The Maternal Sepsis Intervention, focusing on a primary cause of maternal death in Uganda, demonstrates the systemic nature of AMR and the gains that can be made through improved Infection Prevention Control and direct engagement of laboratory testing in antibiotic prescribing. Louise Ackers holds a Chair in Global Social Justice at the University of Salford, UK, and has recently been appointed as a consultant for the World Health Organization. Gavin Ackers-Johnson is Researcher at the University of Salford, UK. Joanne Welsh is Researcher at the University of Salford, UK. Samuel Opio is Secretary General of the Pharmaceutical Society of Uganda. Daniel Kibombo is a Microbiologist at Fort Portal Regional Referral Hospital and the Infectious Disease Institute.
