CAIRN-INT.INFO : International Edition

Objectives and domains

Périnatalité is a cross-disciplinary journal intended for anyone who works in the area of childbirth. It is also open to service users and professionals involved in pregnancy, childbirth, and infancy: obstetricians and midwives, pediatricians and nursery nurses, surgeons, psychiatrists, child psychiatrists, psychologists, anesthetist-resuscitators, geneticists, epidemiologists, general practitioners, and psychomotor therapists. Périnatalité provides a platform for these professionals, but also for service users, in the form of editorials, original articles, syntheses, and opinion pieces.
