The second edition of Introductory Maternity and Pediatric Nursing reflects the underlying philosophy of love, caring, and support for the childbearing woman, the child, and the families of these individuals. Recognizing that the responsibility of caring for the pregnant woman and ill child increasingly falls on the family, this text stresses teaching the patient, family and child with an emphasis on prevention.
