Summary

This new eighth edition of the classic maternity nursing textbook for LPN/LVN students is fully revised, updated, and revamped for the 21st century, reflecting the rapidly changing world of health care. A timely new chapter on complementary and alternative therapies discusses the relationships among the physiology of pregnancy, medications, and homeopathy. New content addresses the scope of LPN/LVN practice and practice settings, including charting responsibilities; multidisciplinary care and clinical pathways, to highlight collaborative care; and the underlying themes of community-based maternity nursing, culturally sensitive obstetric care, and the benefits of health promotion and self-care to a healthy pregnancy, delivery, and infant development.
