Abstract:

Gynaecologists are concerned with the functions and diseases specific to women, especially those affecting the reproductive system, while obstetricians specialise in pregnancy and childbirth. A doctor will often specialise in both these areas, and the data reported in this section does not allow a distinction between these two specialties. Midwives provide care and advice to women during pregnancy, labour and childbirth and the post‐natal period for cases without complications. They deliver babies working independently or in collaboration with doctors and nurses.
