This is the first time I actually couldn't put down a textbood! Evidence based practices,(resources noted),enrich this teaching tool, written with clarity and precision, highlighting the neccessary knowledge and attitudes required to be an effective care provider. I highly recommend this book to medical students and nurses alike. If you want to develop confidence and competence, refresh your knowledge, or polish your comprehension, this book does all of that, and more. I so appreciated obtaining knowledge that excites and elevates the practice of nursing!
Challenging us to be at the top of our game;"to possess an understanding of maternal and fetal physiology and to know the purpose and physiologic impact of our actions," or inactions. Incites behaviors that would create a culture-of-collaboration, a patient-centered-service system, intent to engage a supportive environment enabling safety and satisfaction. Wow!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for a novice RN September 29, 2011
Format:Paperback
I bought this book to help me as a new nurse in an inpatient OB-Antepartum&Postpartum nurse. It helped me see what was going on in Labor & Delivery. The writer's style is very easy to read & she makes very practical sense on how to manage your career in L&D. O love this book and have re-read it several times to keep data fresh in my mind.

Michelle Murray consistently delivers the references nurses need to guide their practice in safe and evidence based care. This is the second copy I've purchased as my other one "walked " away from my office.
