Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Designed to meet the needs of today's students, Lowdermilk's "Maternity Nursing, 8th edition" addresses the fundamentals of maternity nursing in a concise, focused presentation. Integrating the importance of understanding family, culture, and health promotion into the continuum of care, it also includes integration of community-based care to emphasize that nursing care takes place in many settings. "Maternity Nursing" focuses on childbearing issues and concerns, including care of the newborn, but also addresses wellness promotion and management of common women's health problems.
