In this current edition, for the first time, a life course approach to women’s health is applied to the clinical practice of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. Life is considered a continuum ‘from the cradle to the grave’, where each life stage affects the individual’s health and wellbeing and that of future generations. This approach in obstetric and gynaecological patient care provides a path towards healthy ageing, with specific attention for lifestyle, prevention and social context. By managing not only disease, but also the health of the population, women’s healthcare providers will deliver future care in a much more multidisciplinary fashion.
The textbook’s structure and content have been completely revised and rewritten according to the life course approach, and the volume has been considerably condensed by an outstanding team of authors. The illustrative material has also been renewed, and now includes 3D video animations and films of five surgical procedures in the e-book version.
The textbook should serve as a reference not only for medical and midwifery students but also for gynaecologists in training and other clinicians who have the privilege of caring for women and their families, from the earliest moments in life onwards.

Future perspectives
Eric A.P. Steegers
Life course approach A life course perspective offers a novel opportunity to optimize women’s health and woman-centred care. It involves all interrelated stages of a woman’s life taking into account the short-term and long-term effects of biological, behavioural and social exposures during the preconception period, gestation, childhood, adolescence, adulthood and old age. This will impact the way healthcare for women will be provided (.fig. 1).

Gynaecologists will work in multidisciplinary teams, linking hospital care and community services and crossing different working environments. Networking medicine also offers possibilities for initiating preventive interventions, such as for folic acid supplementation and nutritional intake, stop smoking and alcohol use and discuss contraception at a young age, encouraging a healthy lifestyle and enabling women to take control of their own health behaviours. Applications of information and internet technology – e-health – have a huge potential to do this. Medicine will move beyond treating and curing sick people into improving public health and well-being. The quality of health services and professionals will be increasingly judged by measures of health status which matter to and are reported by women themselves instead of indicators such as survival or complications of treatment only. Participatory medicine will further evolve. In value-based healthcare such values will be defined relative to costs and effectiveness in providing care should therefore be continuously monitored and subject to improvement.
