To Lisa, Bonnie, Molly, and Michael for their unending loving support.
To Bette and Ray for giving me this opportunity.
For Rebekah and Trey, my life’s reason and reward.
To my mentors, Roger Freeman and Ted Quilligan, and to Fred Zuspan, who we sorely miss.
Thank you for setting the example for how best to serve the specialty by improving care and outcomes for women and children and for how to treat patients, students, and colleagues along the way.
I am dedicating this fifth edition, once again, to the love of my life, Dr. Lisa Dado.
She is my wife and life partner, my inspiration, and my best friend.
