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. This edition's updated full-color photos and drawings enliven and support the text, especially for visual learners. A companion Website includes video clips related to developmental tasks of pregnancy, vaginal birth, Cesarean delivery, assisting with breastfeeding, developmental considerations in caring for children, care of the hospitalized child, and pediatric medication administration.
