Summary

For use as a core text for Maternity Nursing courses that include women's health.

Nurses working with childbearing families face a variety of new challenges, including shortened lengths of hospital stay, the trend toward greater use of community-based and home care, and downsizing and mergers of health-care systems. The Eighth Edition of this popular text continues to emphasize the central role played by maternity nurses working with today's childbearing families, but also includes a global perspective, covering culture as a factor in relating to the woman's childbirth experience. Women's health is emphasized throughout the lifespan, not only during the childbearing years, providing a more comprehensive perspective.
