A departure from the "medical model", this book emphasizes client education, shifting delivery of care, and a collaborative approach. The text's integrated, holistic perspective incorporates detailed core content in pathophysiology, normal and high-risk pregnancy, and women's health across the life-span within a framework of biological, psychosocial, cultural, and environmental theory.
