Great textbook  March 30, 2011
by


I have rented this textbook from ecampus 2 weeks ago and i really enjoyed this textbook (as much as a textbook can be enjoyable). It is concise, well-written, and to the point. Information is intelligently arranged so it is easy to reference and look things up. There are also lots of care plans included to help you out with clinical paperwork.

Summary

With comprehensive coverage of maternal, newborn, and women's health nursing, Maternity & Women's Health Care, 10th Edition provides evidence-based coverage of everything you need to know about caring for women of childbearing age. It's the #1 maternity book in the market -- and now respected authors Dr. Deitra Leonard Lowdermilk, Dr, Shannon E. Perry, Kitty Cashion, and Kathryn R. Alden have improved readability and provided a more focused approach!

Not only does this textbook emphasize childbearing issues and concerns, including care of the newborn, it addresses wellness promotion and management of common women's health problems. In describing the continuum of care, it integrates the importance of understanding family, culture, and community-based care.
