Technological advances are furthering the level of care that is possible in the growing field of high dependency care in obstetrics, which increases the likelihood of a favorable outcome for both mother and baby. However, knowledge in this field of critical and high–dependency care is well behind the current state of the art, which can lead to missed opportunities and unnecessarily tragic outcomes. The authors are aware of the glaring gaps in knowledge and provide concise practical guidance, with flow charts and algorithms, to guide best practice in this important field.
