Only have time for the essentials? Maternity Nursing Care provides the core components of safe nursing practice for the obstetric client through application of the nursing process. Chronologically organized, the book covers women’s health, pregnancy care, labor and childbirth, postpartum care, and newborn development. Both normal and high-risk pregnancy situations are addressed, including appropriate nursing considerations. Through prioritization of health promotion, emphasizing "care" over "treatment", and fostering the nurse-client relationship, the perspective is uniquely geared to the nurse. Essentially, this is the resource of choice for maternity nursing.
