About this item

Praise for the First Edition:

"This is a concise, yet comprehensive book. I would recommend that any advanced practice nurse working in obstetrics have it on the bookshelf. It could also be used as a protocol manual for small practices." Score: 100, 5 Stars --Doody's Medical Reviews

The only comprehensive source of current, evidence-based guidelines for nurse practitioners, nurse-midwives, clinical nurse specialists, and other health professionals who provide prenatal and postpartum care in outpatient settings, this clinical reference covers the latest health care guidelines in an easy-to-read, outline format. With three new chapters, Obesity in Pregnancy, Dermatological Concerns, and Preventing Zika in Pregnancy, the second edition has also been updated to include new guidelines from professional organizations such as the Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses; American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists; American Academy of Pediatricians; and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force.

Delivered in a convenient, spiral-bound format for health professionals in a busy clinical practice setting, this guide addresses clinical topics and practice standards regarding preconception, prenatal, and postpartum nursing care. Topics are broken down into definition, etiology, history, physical exam, lab exam, differential diagnosis, treatment, complications, consultation/referral, and follow-up. Sections provide in-depth detail on genetic counseling, health promotion and assessment, lactation issues, and medications during pregnancy.
